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, as well as the Little Brown Books trailer! Congratulations again, Jon!!
