"A great children’s picturebook is more rare than a great poem.”

Sage Merriman

A great children’s picturebook requires the convergence of two near-perfect performances - whether in collaboration between author and illustrator... or in the pairing of these talents applied by a single, extraordinary individual.

We frequently honor books that fail to live up to this incredibly high double standard.

We should.

But the standard still exists and it is rarely met.
