Doug Salati. Photo: Erin V. Carr. To be perfectly honest, I don’t really know how he did it. For the past four years I’ve sat roughly six feet from Doug Salati, inadvertently (and sometimes intentionally) listening to and watching him work on Hot Dog, from its foggiest beginnings to its...

2023 Caldecott Medal Acceptance by Doug Salati
