"A profoundly moving yet also at times very funny novel about family, friendship, community, and the power of words."

- Elissa Gershowitz, The Horn Book

"Rarely have I read a children’s book so suspenseful ..."

- Jervey Tervalon, The New York Times

"Beautiful storytelling as only Curtis can do it."

THE MISSING CHAPTERS OF

THE MIGHTY MISS MALONE

 

There are literally thousands of pages from classic novels that wound their way into the 'circular file'  - whether it was intended by the author, editor, or perhaps collaborative decision. Such titles include "Charley and the Chocolate Factory," Catch 22," "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," "A Clockwork Orange," among many others.

 

Although the alterations found within THE MIGHTY MISS MALONE do not carry the impact upon the story as some of the aforementioned, Christopher thought it might be of interest to provide fans and collectors the missing Prologue and Epilogue chapters that were originally intended for his seventh novel for the first time ever. Enjoy.

TAKE A RIDE ALONG WITH THE WATSONS

Christopher’s award-winning debut novel is delightfully adapted to the small screen with Kenny, Byron, Joetta, Wilona and Daniel Watson brought wondrously to life by some of the best talent in Hollywood.

 

The Hallmark film stays faithful to the original story following the adventures of the “Weird Watsons” traveling from Michigan to the south with plans to drop Byron off to the grandmother because of his troublesome behavior. Set in the early ‘60s, the vacation becomes a harsh lesson on racism when the family is personally affected by the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing.

 

Celebrate the book’s 20th anniversary by getting a copy of The Watsons Go To Birmingham – 1963 available on both DVD and Blu-Ray.

"The Watsons Go to Birmingham achieves what is still unfortunately too rare — a depiction of black life and black history on television that doesn’t feel like a homework assignment. "

- Hank Stuever, The Washington Post
