I really liked this book, but wondering if it is eligible for the Caldecott, since the illustrator resides in Ireland (according to the book flap). Possible he has a U.S. residence as well, but it made me curious. Anyone know the answer? I would think about including it in my list, since I really enjoyed the illustrations, but wonder about the eligibility.
I had to dig for this, but I think I have an answer for you, Yed. According to his website, Michael Emberley was born in Boston, Massachusetts. Although he does currently reside in Ireland, he is still a US citizen by birthright, which fulfills the Caldecott Award criteria. Does anyone else have thoughts on this?
Kris - Thanks. This was a fun book, and a great read, so I was hoping it might be eligible. Thanks for taking the time to research it for me.
