A Tall Tale: Laura Amy Schlitz
Gallagher, Mary Grace
School Library Journal, v54 n4 p34-37 Apr 2008
In this article, American author, children's librarian, and storyteller Laura Amy Schlitz is profiled. Schlitz is the winner of this year's Newbery Medal for her tall tale about the Mongols called "Gulnara the Tartar Warrior." Like her award-winning book, "Good Masters! Sweet Ladies!" (Candlewick, 2007), the tale takes place in the Middle Ages. Like Gulnara, the 23 characters that populate the pages of "Good Masters!" sprang to life to help kids grasp the ethos of an age when being a child was a dangerous business. Schlitz is the second consecutive librarian to win the coveted Newbery Medal.
