Jean Craighead George, author of more than 80 children's books, including the Newbery Medal-winning Julie of the Wolves, created another prizewinner with My Side of the Mountain--a Newbery Honor Book, an ALA Notable Book, and a Hans Christian Andersen Award Honor Book. Astonishingly, she wrote its sequel, On the Far Side of the Mountain, 30 years later, and a decade after that penned the final book in the trilogy, Frightful's Mountain, told from the falcon's point of view. George has no doubt shaped generations of young readers with her outdoor adventures of the mind and spirit. (Ages 9 to 12) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
I'd never really "read" a book before like this, kid's say "Chapter book" now.
The book, My Side of the Mountain, is a very good book about a boy named Sam Grebley running away from home to survive in the Catskill Mountains.
Even adults will enjoy reading this book themselves or reading them aloud to their children.
My Side of the Mountain is a good book.
I like it because it's about a boy who leaves home to live in the wild. Where he felt he needed to be. Read more
