Winner Description: 
by Tomie dePaola, and published by Putnam
Winner Blurb: 

In this book dePaola looks back to 1938 when his family, overcoming fire and flood, builds a new house. That year Tomie "quits" kindergarten, shares "chocolates" with Nana upstairs, critiques a movie, practices mural art, and finally moves to 26 Fairmount Avenue.

"Tomie dePaola fills easy-to-read chapters with humorous, but telling vignettes that introduce his extended family and the ordinary events of his kindergarten year. He speaks with an authentic child voice, fresh as childhood itself."
