Behind the Scenes of ALL THIRTEEN with Double Newbery Honor Winner Christina Soontornvat

On Monday, Christina Soontornvat took home TWO Newbery Honors – a feat that has only happened one other time (Meindert Dejong in 1954).

One of those books – All Thirteen: The Incredible Rescue of the Thai Boys’ Soccer Team – is the focus of the latest episode of The Yarn podcast.

Colby Sharp interviews Christina Soontornvat all about the book that barely has enough space to fit all the shiny stickers.
