Sharpen the Hatchet! March 21, 2007

Posted by sneaks in display topics, J fiction, J is for Juvenile, YA.

Debbie Wheeler passed along an article from the Baltimore Sun partially attributing the survival of a lost 12-year-old Boy Scout to the skills and inspiration he gleaned from reading Gary Paulsen’s classic novel Hatchet.

Take advantage of the media publicity and haul out a batch of Gary Paulsen’s Brian books, in addition to his juvenile autobiography, Guts: the true stories behind Hatchet and the Brian books. You might flesh out the display with other wilderness novels, such as My Side of the Mountain and Call of the Wild, or with other Juvenile and Young Adult books by Gary Paulsen.
