Description
A Newbery Medal Winner
"A supersharp mystery...confoundingly clever, and very funny." —Booklist, starred review

A bizarre chain of events begins when sixteen unlikely people gather for the reading of Samuel W. Westing's will. And though no one knows why the eccentric, game-loving millionaire has chosen a virtual stranger—and a possible murderer—to inherit his vast fortune, on things for sure: Sam Westing may be dead...but that won't stop him from playing one last game!
Winner of the Newbery Medal
Winner of the Boston Globe/Horn Book Award
An ALA Notable Book

"Great fun for those who enjoy illusion, word play, or sleight of hand." —The New York Times Book Review
"A fascinating medley of word games, disguises, multiple aliases, and subterfuges—a demanding but rewarding book." —The Horn Book

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: THE WESTING GAME is a sly murder mystery. (Puzzle might be a better word--there's really only cartoon grisliness in this book.) Woodman's youthful voice and energetic delivery fit it perfectly. Expertly, he distinguishes at least a dozen principals of wildly varying age, class and ethnicity, avoiding the annoying falsetto that many male readers use to portray women and children. It's a great performance. S.P. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine

        The reading of a will initiates a murder mystery in this 1979 Newbery Medal winner. Ages 10-up.
