2014 Caldecott and Newbery Medal Winners

2014 Caldecott and Newbery Medal Winners

The results are in!

The Newbery Medal for "the most distinguished American children's book" of 2014 was awarded Monday, January 27, to Flora & Ulysses, written by Kate DiCamillo.

"Holy unanticipated occurrences! A cynic meets an unlikely superhero in a genre-breaking new novel by master storyteller Kate DiCamillo. It begins, as the best superhero stories do, with a tragic accident that has unexpected consequences. The squirrel never saw the vacuum cleaner coming, but self-described cynic Flora Belle Buckman, who has read every issue of the comic book Terrible Things Can Happen to You!, is the just the right person to step in and save him."

Locomotive, illustrated by Brian Floca, is the 2014 Caldecott Medal winner.

"All aboard! Accompany a family on an unforgettable weeklong train trip from Omaha to Sacramento in 1869. Brian Floca’s dramatic watercolor, ink, acrylic and gouache illustrations incorporate meticulously-researched portraits of the train, the travelers and the crew as they traverse the American landscape on the new transcontinental railroad."
