Now v Wonderstruck

School Library Journal Battle of the Books, Round 1, Match 8. Okay for Now v Wonderstruck. Judge: Jeff Kinney

Jeff Kinney is an audiobook reader! Who knew! These are the types of gems that make SLJsBob so much fun.

Just as important is Kinney’s handy-dandy list of what to look at when deciding between two books:

Prose
Voice
Story
Illustrations
Jane Eyre references
From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler references
Didn’t-see-that-coming secrets
Emotional impact

Kinney used these to decide that the winner is . . . Wonderstruck!
