Congratulations, Jon Klassen! PLUS 'The Dark'



We are so very proud of one of our Red Cap artists, Jon Klassen, who has been honored with one of the highest illustration awards in America--the Caldecott Medal--not once, but TWICE!

An award for the "most distinguished American picture book for children" was awarded to Jon twice for his picture book, This is Not My Hat and Extra Yarn, his collaboration with writer Mac Barnett.

Now, Jon has a brand new book out! A collaboration with children's author Daniel Handler, (aka Lemony Snicket!) The Dark is a story about Laszlo, who overcomes his fear of the dark. Jon's minimalist and charming illustrations help make the story a work of visual art. Check out some pages from the book below! Congratulations again, Jon!!

Barry B. Wary



With all the excitement about baby Arlo, I never had a chance to share the children’s book I illustrated called Barry B. Wary written by the lovely Leslie Muir. It was released in May by Disney-Hyperion. Here it is on Arlo's book shelf. Pretty cool…
