The Gammage Cup.
First edition, first printing. An ALA notable children’s title, also 1960 Newbery Honor title. This fantasy novel for young adults returned to the spotlight in 1999 during a legal dispute over J. K. Rowling’s invention of the word Muggles in the Harry Potter series. Muggles is a character in this novel, although Carol Kendall was more amused by the coincidence than inclined to bring suit.
