Description

Bridge to Terabithia

Katherine Paterson was inspired to write The Bridge to Terabithia after her son's childhood friend was struck and killed by lightning. The novel is a sensitive portrayal of a friendship between Jess, a rural boy who aspires to be the fastest runner in the fifth grade, and Leslie, the city-bred girl who takes the title away from him. "Terabithia" is the name that Leslie bestows upon their hideaway, a secret spot in the woods where she shares with Jess her books, ideas and dreams.

This copy, a first edition, second printing shows the Newbery Medal recognition on the cover, awarded annually by the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association, to the author of the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children.

Signed by Paterson and dated 2/16/78, this shows an early signature of one of the most popular modern authors of children's literature.

This book measures 9 1/4 x 6 3/8"
