15 May 2007 Trophy Newbery

Don’t judge a man until you’ve walked two moons in his moccasins.

What is the meaning of this strange message left on the doorstep? Only Sal knows, and on a roadtrip with her grandparents she tells the bizarre tale of Phoebe Winterbottom, Phoebe’s disappearing mother and the lunatic. But who can help Sal make sense of the mystery that surrounds her own story . . . and her own missing mother?

Amazon Review

Walk Two Moons, winner of the Newbury Medal, intelligently and without fuss tells the story of a young girl whose mother has gone away from her, but who has a long journey ahead before she can come to terms with the reality that has haunted her for such a long time.

Salamanca Hiddle and her delightfully eccentric grandparents drive through America, taking in the sights, sounds and smells of the country as she recounts the story of her friend Phoebe's mother. As the tale unfolds, so too does the story of Salamanca's own mother, bringing true meaning to the American Indian proverb: "Don't judge a man until you have walked two moons in his moccasins". Sharon Greech takes the reader on a spellbinding, emotional journey through love, anger and grief, but never once relies on schmaltz or sugary sentiment to make her point in this sassy, smart and canny little book. --Susan Harrison --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


"A really satisfying book - funny, poignant, cunning in the unravelling of its mysteries." The Observer" --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST book in the world! 3 Jan 2002
By A Customer
What can I say? I don't think I have ever been so taken with a book as I was with this one. I first read it at the age of eleven and have re-read it through out my teens. I love it so much. It is the most beautiful story which has a wonderful character and life in it. I was so inspired by this tale of one girl's journey to find her mother, that I have recommended it to everyone I know, read all Sharon Creech's books and even sent the author herself a letter in admiration!! It is a true work of genius. I have yet to find another book which is written with such warmness and love as this one and one which can make you experience such emotion(except, ofcourse, for her other books!).
You haven't lived until you've read this book!

I am in year 8 and my english teacher was the one who introduced this book to me.We were given the task of reading a book whilst she was away on holiday .My group reluctently chose walk two moons as it was the last book left on the desk but when we started reading it we were hooked.
This book had three stories in it the story of phoebe and her family.Salamanca and her family and the story of gram and gramps.These stories are all hiding parts of each other and when the parts are revealed a whole new side of the story is opened up to the reader.
By the end of the book I was crying because it was so sad.
Read this book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Absolute Best! 2 May 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was the first book I read by Sharon Creech and it will always remain the closest to my heart! The heartwarming tale of a young girl on her way to find her lost mother and the world that revolves around her, will make you cry, sometimes with happiness. I recommend this book to everyone, young and old, who are trying to discover their true selves.

5.0 out of 5 stars essential for becoming... 25 May 2004
I bought this book when I was about seven from a school book fair - now I am fourteen and it is still one of my favourite books in the world. The characters and all of their little idiosyncrasies (like the blind lady, Mrs Partridge, Phoebe's obsession with psychos, and Mary Lou Finney's exclamations of "Alpha and Omega") make this book better than the average stuff you can find for teens nowdays. Salamanca Tree Hiddle is travelling with her grandparents and is desperate to get to Idaho in time for mother's birthday, dipping into little adventures along the way and telling us the story of her time with Phoebe, Ben, Mary Lou and her classmates, and also her forever-perky English teacher Mr Birkway and her dad's girlfriend Mrs Cadaver. Seriously, just read it, because it will be a book that you will never grow out of.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definetly an award-winning story 27 Dec 2001
By A Customer
"Walk Two Moons" is the first and only book I have read, so far, by Sharon Creech. It was the cover & description that caught my eye at first, but when I started reading it, I knew this wasn't just a book with a nice cover!
The story is funny throughout, but also very touching and sad, it is one of the few books that I have ever cried at.
If you like a story with laughter, a little romance, some sadness & a brilliant twist, this is the book for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Magic 12 Jun 2006
I first read this book when I was perhaps 11 years old and it is still my favourite book of all time. Salamanca Sugar Maple Tree Hiddle - that wonderful name - holds the hippy, bohemian style feel to this novel. Truely a heart warmer and a book to be treasured.
