From Michigan Radio:
Erin Stead won the 2011 Caldecott Medal for her wood block and pencil illustrations in the children’s book, “A Sick Day for Amos McGee.” The book was written by her husband, Philip.
When Erin Stead found out she won the prestigious Caldecott Medal, she was shocked:
“I was floored. I couldn’t believe it. I didn’t see this coming!”
