Celebrate 25 years of this classic bestselling Newbery Medal–winning novel by beloved author Sharon Creech, repackaged with a new burst and exclusive back matter.

The powerful, moving, and at times hilarious story of Salamanca Tree Hiddle’s real and metaphorical journey has swept readers, critics, and educators off their feet for decades. As Sal entertains her grandparents with Phoebe Winterbottom’s outrageous story, her own story begins to unfold—the story of a thirteen-year-old girl whose only wish is to be reunited with her missing mother.

In her own award-winning style, Sharon Creech intricately weaves together two tales—one funny, one bittersweet—to create a heartwarming, compelling, and utterly moving story of love, loss, and the complexity of human emotion. This freshly repackaged 25th anniversary edition of the Newbery Medal–winning novel features a new burst and exclusive back matter and will introduce even more fans to the remarkable world created by Sharon Creech.
