'This Is Not My Hat' Wins Caldecott Medal For Picture Book Artistry

Chloe and the Lion is a story about two artists — Extra Yarn author Mac Barnett and illustrator Adam Rex — trying to tell the story of a little girl who gets lost in the forest. Eventually, she comes upon a lion, but when Rex insists it should be a dragon, he gets eaten by the lion. Eventually, Barnett is left to illustrate the rest of the book on his own. This book seems to have it all: speech bubbles, plastic figurines, good and intentionally bad illustrations, and more
