The Grey King Hardcover Gold Newberry Medal
(Atheneum March 15, 1977)
, Third U.S.Edition edition
he Grey King, won the Newbery Medal in 1976. The prize is awarded yearly by the American Library Association for outstanding contribution to Children's Literature. It is perhaps a testament to the whole series that the award was made (The Dark Is Rising had been the only runner-up in 1974). The Grey King particularly looks at the human cost of the battle between the Dark and the Light. It is a powerful mix which explores the emotions of destiny, friendship love and loss.
