Megan Whalen Turner is a wonder. Her three books to date about Gen and his world are absolute favorites of mine. And if I’d been on Newbery last year The King of Attolia would have been at the top of my list of nominees. Whether I would have figured out how to convince the skeptics on the committee that the apparent narrative gaps were intentional or not, I don’t know. But the book is brilliant. Megan Whalen Turner is brilliant. Gen is brilliant. Attolia is brilliant.
And so is Cheryl Klein for recognizing all that brilliance!
