From the Editor — November 2017

It’s Calling Caldecott season, so make sure you head on over to the sometimes feisty debates. Martha and Lolly and Jules and their crew of contributors are doing a wonderful job of turning the contenders upside-down and inside-out to get at just what we mean when we say “the most distinguished picture book for children.” Lolly walked forthrightly into the Secret Project controversy, and this week Betsy Bird is talking about how realistic illustration seems to work against a book’s Medal chances — what do you think?
