David Wiesner’s Favorite Caldecott

Black and White by David MacaulayStructurally unlike any medal winner before it — or since — Black and White (1991) by David Macaulay redefined the way stories could be told in picture books. And, just as importantly, it did this while being very, very funny.

—David Wiesner,
winner of the Caldecott Medal in 2007 for Flotsam,
in 2002 for The Three Pigs, and in 1992 for Tuesday
