Desert is Theirs
Winner Description: 
illustrated by Peter Parnall, written by Byrd Baylor, and published by Scribner
Winner Blurb: 

The spare, clean elegance of Parnalls's line is perfectly suited to the quiet restraint of Baylor's text in The Desert Is Theirs, a book that is a tribute to the Papagos, the Desert People who call the Earth their mother, who share the land with all desert creatures.  Clear, bright colors are used to heighten and dramatize the white space that prevails on double-page spreads, with realistic scenes incorporating imaginative detail.
