Just Kidding

I could probably get in big trouble for this––more serious than cutting the tag off a pillow, I'm sure.
Today the Caldecott and Newbery medals were announced and I didn't get one. But being in a celebratory spirit, I cut the Caldecott sticker off an old Maurice Sendak cover and tried it on.

Kate DiCamillo's Flora & Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures won the Newbery. If you click on the title, you can read the wonderful story about how the book came to be. I'm dying to get my hands on this book.

My favorite Caldecott award winner was actually an honor book: Mr. Wuffles, by David Wiesner. Click on the title and scroll down. Is it not the most beautiful book cover you have ever seen?
