Jerry Pinkney, one of the top illustrators and authors of children's books, recently won his first Caldecott Gold Medal for The Lion and The Mouse. I stopped by his studio to have him autograph a copy of the book for my granddaughter, Amanda Deyo, and he showed us the watercolor paintings he is creating for his next book Three Little Kittens Who Lost Their Mittens, as well as the stuffed animal his used as his model for the artwork.
