Of Caldecott Medal Winners ... Bullfights ... and Life


I love the art in children's books, do you?

The Caldecott Medal is awarded annually by the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association, to the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children published that year. It was named in honor of nineteenth-century English illustrator Randolph Caldecott. Together with the Newbery Medal it is the most prestigious American children's book prize.

And a old favorite of mine ...
FERDINAND THE BULL by Munro Leaf, illustrations by Robert Dawson

For an examination of bullfighting, symbolism, Zen, the running of the bulls in Pamplona (Fiesta de San Fermin)and music, and ask me "The Song of the Siren." It's fr**, illustrated and full of the art, drama and tragedy that is bullfighting ... and life.
