About this product
- DescriptionBetween laughs, readers will be prompted to think about what constitutes truth, how the media massages it, and the importance of ethics, fairness, and getting the facts right. PUBLISHERS WEEKLY (starred review) Adam Canfield has to be the most overprogrammed middle-school student in America. So when super-organized Jennifer coaxes him to be coeditor of their school newspaper, THE SLASH, he wonders if he s made a big mistake. But when a third-grader s article leads to a big scoop, Adam and his fellow junior journalists rise to the challenge of receiving their principal s wrath to uncover some scandalous secrets. From a Pulitzer Prize-winning author and NEW YORK TIMES columnist comes a funny, inspiring debut that sneaks in some lessons on personal integrity and captures the rush that s connected to the breaking of a really great story.
- Author BiographyMichael Winerip says that many of the stories in ADAM CANFIELD OF THE SLASH are based on his own experiences working as a newspaper reporter for thirty years. I wanted to write a book about kids with super powers, he says. So I gave Adam lots of notebooks and pens and a newspaper that would print his stories. Next, I threw in a few suspicious characters, then stood back and waited for some magic stuff to happen. Michael Winerip is a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter for the NEW YORK TIMES and is also the author of an award-winning nonfiction book for adults, 9 HIGHLAND ROAD. He lives with his wife and four children, who provide fresh material for his writing daily. ADAM CANFIELD OF THE SLASH is his first book for young readers.
