“The Caldecott Medal has been awarded! Blueberries for Sal, One Morning in Maine, and Make Way for Ducklings fans will enjoy this.

“Out on the islands that poke their rocky shores above the waters of Penobscot Bay, you can watch the time of the world go by, from minute to minute, hour to hour, day to day…” begins the author of One Morning in Maine and Blueberries for Sal’s classic story of one summer on a Maine island. The rain, gulls, foggy morning, the excitement of sailing, the quiet of the night, the sudden terror of a hurricane, and, finally, the island’s peace as the family packs up to leave are depicted in poetic language and vibrant, evocative images.”
