Author Info
Katherine Paterson
Born to German-American missionary parents, Katherine Womeldorf moved frequently during her childhood. As an adult, she followed in her parents' footsteps and served as a missionary in Japan. She received a fellowship to study at Union Theological Seminary where she met her future husband, John Paterson, a Presbyterian minister. Her 1975 book, THE MASTER PUPPETEER, won the National Book Award. She wrote one of her best-known books, THE BRIDGE TO TERABITHIA, in response to the death of her son's best friend. It won the Newbery Medal in 1978. In 1981 she won her second Newbery Medal, this time for JACOB HAVE I LOVED.
"Told in the voice of a storyteller in the style of A. A. Milne or J. M. Barrie, the tale will make an excellent read-aloud."
"[T]he Patersons' modern abridgment allows the tale to of all, the story delivers."
"A grand tale skillfully updated and tightened up, this should win the hearts of a new generation."
