I would be King Christian the leader of Denmark. I am sad because they invaded my country and I surrendered. Why I think this book earned the Newberry Honor Medal.
I think this book earned the Newberry Honor Medal because of all the emotions from all the characters.
For an example Annemarie's friends and family experienced Sadness “How sad the king must be of destroying his own fleet”pg.32
Another example is Kristi experienced Anger . “But most mothers wouldn’t make their daughter wear fish shoes” pg. 28
One more example of is when Annemaire experienced Sarcasm when The Nazis told her “Go tell your uncle the German dogs ate his bread”.pg.118 Thank You for Watching
