Product Description

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.

Review

"[This] engaging story of love and loss, told with humor and suspense...[is] a richly layered novel about real and metaphorical journeys."-- "SLJ." "The book is packed with humor and affection and is an odyssey of unexpected twists and surprising conclusions."-- "1995 Newbery Award Selection Committee."

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

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.

"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.

Walk Two Moons is, in my opinion, Sharon Creech's best book. It's moving and sad, yet uplifting and funny, all at once. It's told from the point of view of Salamanca Tree Hiddle, a thirteen year old girl who's trying to deal with a huge upheaval in her life - a new home and the sudden disappearance of her mother from her life. I particularly like the way Sal's friend Phoebe goes through a crisis of a similar kind and Sal, as an outside observer, is able to see how Phoebe's reactions parallel her own. I cared so much about the characters and they were all so believable I felt like I knew them myself. Phoebe was great and added a lot of humour to the story (I thought it was particularly funny when she kept talking about cholesterol and complained so much that Sal felt like throwing her out of the window). Walk Two Moons is a book that really gives you something to think about and I strongly suggest you buy it.

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.

Are you searching for a book to add to your reading list? I might have an answer. Walk Two Moons is a really fascinating book, and I couldn't stop reading it. The theme of the story is how much a separation from the people we love can hurt our feelings. The story talks about a girl named Salamanca that lives in Bybanks, Kentucky. Her mum moved to another state, Idaho, and now she lives with her father. She starts a trip with her grandparents from Kentucky to Ohio to meet her mother in time for her birthday. During the trip she is telling her grandparents about her new friend Phoebe and she is telling about the problems that Phoebe had with her family and a strange man that leaves them messages and they think he is a lunatic. She also talks about how she helped her friend and through that she realizes that she is going over similar sad things although she is hiding her sadness. Will she overcome her sadness and will she help her friend overcome her fears too? Read the book, if you want to find out. I would give this book 5/5 for interest due to its creative settings, its likeable and realistic characters, the author's beautiful words and phrases and its helpful themes.

This story takes place mostly in her grandparent's car and at her home in Bybanks but what really impressed me of the author's choices was that she made the main character tell the story while she was in her grandparent's car and through her thinking she moved us to a different setting and I didn't feel like the story took place in the car any more.
