  1. checking on whether this book is eligible since it’s an abridgement. Any thoughts?

    • This is already off our reading list because of our opinions of it, but it also seems that it is more a “bringing the story to a modern audience” adaptation than a typical “retelling of a fairy tale” that I had originally thought. We will not be nominating this title for our Mock Newbery Award, but instead, will be recommending it to others as a good read.
