Winner Description: 
by written and illustrated by Brian Floca (Simon & Schuster/Richard Jackson)
Winner Blurb: 

In simple, stately prose that perfectly complements his luminous watercolors, Floca introduces the lightship Ambrose, its crew and cat.  Masterful use of the historical present tense, deft, humorous touches and detailed endpapers engage young children while acknowledgments and notes in the book, fore and aft, provide context.
