Parsons Illustration Alum wins 2011 Caldecott Honor


Parsons Illustration Alum David Ezra Stein has been awarded a 2011 Caldecott Honor for his book, “Interrupting Chicken” (see the trailer above!).  Here’s an excerpt from the official press release:

The American Library Association (ALA) announced the top books, video and audiobooks for children and young adults – including the Caldecott, Coretta Scott King, Newbery and Printz awards – at its Midwinter Meeting in San Diego.

Two Caldecott Honor Books were named: “Dave the Potter: Artist, Poet, Slave,” illustrated by Bryan Collier, written by Laban Carrick Hill and published by Little, Brown and Company, a division of Hachette Book Group, Inc.; and “Interrupting Chicken,” written and illustrated by David Ezra Stein and published by Candlewick Press.
Congratulations to David on this very high honor.
