|1979 Newbery Winner|
Room 102 is collecting the Newbery Medal-Winning Books. Today students were treated- -not to a book- - but one of the Newbery winners that has been made into a movie. It was the perfect snuggle-in-rainy-afternoon movie day.
The Westing Game is a clever story. The book is a classic mystery book, but it is not a quick read. The reader must pay close attention to all the little details. The movie moves much faster, and it was a box office hit for students. One comment after the show was, "This movie was like a game of Clue."
No movie is complete without popcorn and theater candy.
