Illustrated Friday: Hey, Al


Next stop on our road trip through the Caldecott Medal winners is Hey, Al by Arthur Yorinks and Richard Egielski. It's a cute story about a guy who dreams and wishes for something more and, once he gets it, realizes that the grass isn't always greener on the other side. You never know how good life is until you're dropped into something completely different. I'll be honest, I'm not sure why this book won a Caldecott, but it is a nice book and one that kids will enjoy. Happy Friday!

I have heard of this one before but as picture books aren't all that easily available at book stores here I don't think I got a chance to read this one.
