Creepy Carrots gets the Caldecott Honor!

In a thrilling and unexpected surprise, Creepy Carrots has been awarded the Caldecott Honor for Peter Brown’s magnificent illustrations.


This award, which is like the Oscars for children’s books, is awarded each year for outstanding illustration in a children’s book. I remember reading books as a kid with this little silver medal on them, but never dreamed that one day, one of MY books might have it emblazoned across the front.

Peter tells a delightful story on his blog about the morning he got the call. Check it out here.

Very exciting news!!!! Thanks to all who have made this book a success, to teachers and librarians who continue to put this book into kids’ hands, to parents who believe in buying books for kids in the e-crazy world, to the incredible Peter Brown for gracing my goofy little story with his award-winning artwork, and to the Caldecott Committee for recognizing funny quirky books and not just serious mushy ones!
