This Is Not My Hat - Caldecott Winner!

By January 31, 2013

Follow me on:

Cover art - This Is Not My HatJon Klassen is the 2013 Randolph Caldecott Medal winner for picture book illustration for This Is Not My Hat, a dark and funny book that will appeal to ages 4 to 8. For two years running, picture books written and illustrated by Klassen have been on my personal list of the best illustrated books of the year. This year it was This Is Not My Hat and last year, it was I Want My Hat Back. Extra Yarn, which Klassen also illustrated, is a 2013 Caldecott Honor Book. I have added the 2013 information to my 75 Years of Caldecott Medal Winners. Were you pleased Klassen won the 2013 Caldecott Medal or do you have another picture book published in 2012 that you prefer? Click on "Comments" below and share your opinion.
