Winner Description: 
by Marc Simont, and published by HarperCollins
Winner Blurb: 

A chance encounter turns into a family love affair in this disarmingly simple, gently humorous, and emotionally satisfying tale. The soft palette and subtle touches in the distinctive watercolors perfectly capture the heroic actions of the young protagonists and convey the universal feelings of longing and belonging.

"A heartwarming tale, satisfyingly told with an economy of word and art, this story will resonate with both children and adults for years to come. Simont's illustrations create an emotional identity of Willy as 'Everydog' and the boy and girl as 'Everychild.'"
