This book is hilarious, and also, a life of crime never pays. Next time you talk to my girls ask them about their favorite page. It changes weekly. But we can all agree that the crab-snitch is a clear contender.
And since I kind of buried the link to a video of another favorite in our house – I’ll embed the video of Oliver Jeffers discussing his process a bit (thanks again, Krista, for the sending it our way), and since I’m thinking about these sorts of things, I also think I’ll do a roundup of our favorite past Caldecott winners (including Sylvester and the Magic Pebble from this past Monday).
