  1. I think Anita Jeram may be British--that would make her ineligible for the Caldecott, right?

    Lovely book though.

  2. You are so correct, Ceane -- Anita Jeram lives in Northern Ireland. One criteria of the Caldecott Award is that the illustrator must be a citizen or resident of the United States.

    Thanks for keeping us on our toes!

    And, I must agree, it IS a lovely book.
