At the Newbery Caldecott banquet a friend was kind enough to take a picture of me with Kevin Henkes and his editor, Virginia Duncan. I’ve long been a fan of his work (since first hearing Chrysanthemum read aloud to me by a fellow grad student at UW). I’ve used Kitten’s First Full Moon with toddlers and preschool storytimes, and most recently for our Picture This art program. So it was a pretty cool moment – well worth wearing kitten ears to the banquet! You can even see one of the ears as I ride in place of John Gilpin in the fabulous Caldecott photo-op.
