2003 Award
Thank You, Sarah
( by Laurie Halse Anderson/ illus. by Matt Faulkner, Simon & Schuster $16.95 Score: ) Meet Sarah Hale, a fiesty lady who wouldn't take no for an answer. It took her four decades and lots of rejection letters, but Sarah believed in the power of the pen. She not only worked as an editor, she wrote Mary Had a Little Lamb, children's books, novels and finally the one letter that turned Thanksgiving into a national holiday! After writing to one president after another, she eventually sent a letter to Abe Lincoln, who liked her idea. Her stick-to-it -ness saved Thanksgiving. Written in a breezy style that speaks directly to the reader while mixing past and present with dollops of humor.
