Winner Description: 
illustrated by John Schoenherr, written by Jane Yolen, and published by Philomel
Winner Blurb: 

In Owl Moon, a landscape muffled by a heavy layer of snow, from scattered sapling trees into the deeper shadows of an evergreen forest, is lit by a moon, an Owl Moon.  This is the setting for an evocative adventure shared by a father and his young child, as they explore the nighttime world in search of owls.  Shoenherr's luminous illustrations accent the brightness of the snow within the blue hues of the forest, melding with the lyrical text into a sensory experience for all readers.  Owl Moon conveys the feeling of the cold winter night and celebrates the warmth of a family adventure.
