Winner Description: 
by Joseph Krumgold, and published by Crowell
Winner Blurb: 

Onion John is the story of twelve-year-old Andy, who lives in Serenity, a typical American town, and of his deep friendship with Onion John, occupant of the city dump.  Onion John's old world roots and ways, as well as his acquaintance with charms to influence nature's whimsies, make him a living anachronism to the town's citizenry.  It tells too of Andy's relationship with his father, for between them is love, but also  the eternal conflict of the parent's desire to relive life in the child, positive that it will result in a richer life for the boy.  Onion John, with basic wisdom, resolves this conflict to perfection.
