I really hope this book makes the Caldecott shortlist because it deserves it. It is beautifully illustrated. And the story is no slouch either. A mouse finds crown in the woods. Others see him wearing it and assume he is the king. But them more and more find crowns. Except for the bear. There is no crown for him. But maybe he will find something even better. The story is wonderful and the illustrations are perfect. Give this book an award already. ( )
