Winner Description: 
by David Wiesner, and published by Clarion Books
Winner Blurb: 

"Sector 7" tells the story of a small boy on a class trip to the Empire State Building who is transported by a friendly cloud to Sector 7, a great cloud factory high in the sky. Once there, they conspire with clouds that are bored with their shapes and long for a new way to express their individuality.

"Wiesner's striking and dramatic watercolors transform the childhood fantasy of figures in the clouds into an imaginative story without words. He skillfully leads us from reality to fantasy and back again through the use of expressive body language, layered and boxed illustrations, and impeccable pacing and placement."
