BGHB picture book day

We’re so excited about the 2013 Boston Globe–Horn Book Award winners and honorees that we wanted to give you more!

Here’s Five Questions for Jonathan Bean, the 2013 BGHB Picture Book Award winner for Building Our House, from the January 2013 issue of Notes from the Horn Book. And here’s a question that Horn Book Magazine reviewer Betty Carter had for the author about his unconventional upbringing (from the January/February 2013 issue of The Horn Book Magazine).

The two Boston Globe–Horn Book picture book honorees are themselves pretty unconventional. For more meta-leaning books, à la Open This Little Book by Jesse Klausmeier, illustrated by Suzy Lee, click here. If surrealism is more your bag, as is Levi Pinfold’s Black Dog, check out this list.

Find reviews of all of the winners here. And keep up with Lolly at Calling Caldecott.
