Lolly Robinson and Robin Smith will inaugurate this season of the Calling Caldecott blog tomorrow, and I know that the questions posed in the logo (What can win? What will win? What should win?) will provide plenty of discussion. At the HBAS colloquium later this month, I’m going to be talking to Erin Stead, Phil Stead, and Jon Klassen about what I think of as the lo-fi movement in picture books, and its preference for simplicity over sumptuousness and shorter texts over longer ones. A Ball for Daisy certainly fit that bill, but what’s gonna happen this year? Tune in tomorrow.
Calling Caldecott back on the hunt tomorrow
