The Witch of Blackbird Pondwas the 1959 Newbery Medal winner. After the death of her grandfather, 16-year-old Kit leaves her Caribbean home to live with her Puritan aunt and uncle in Connecticut. Her unexpected arrival sets the stage for conflict between the free-spirited Kit and the Puritan community--especially when she befriends the old widow who lives beside Blackbird Pond.
