Jerry Pinkney is an illustrator of children’s books. He won the 2010 Caldecott Medal for his wordless picture book ‘The Lion & the Mouse’, his interpretation of Aesop’s fable. He also has five Caldecott Honors.
Illustrator Jon Klassen and author Mac Barnett accept the 2012 Boston Globe-Horn Book Award for Picture Book for Extra Yarn, at the September 28, 2012 BGHB award ceremony at Simmons College in Boston, Massachusetts.
It’s just over 20 mins long, but hearing them talk so passionately and eloquently about the picture book form is truely inspiring.
Also Mac Barnett is really funny.
I love these. It’s really addictive. I spent a large portion of the day doing this. Maybe I’ll post some of my poems later.
