This is Not My HatJon Klassen has been named the winner of the 2014 Kate Greenaway Medal for Illustration.

Klassen was presented with this award for his 2012 title, This is Not My Hat. According to the press release, Klassen’s hit picture book “will go into the history books as the first ever title to win both the UK’s highest illustration honor with the Kate Greenaway Medal, and also win the most prestigious award for children’s book illustration in the US, the Randolph Caldecott Medal, which was awarded in 2013.”

The same year that Klassen received a Caldecott Medal for This is Not My Hat, he also earned a Caldecott Honor for Extra Yarn which is written by Mac Barnett. Klassen and Barnett will team up once again for a new project entitled Sam and Dave Dig a Hole; Candlewick Press plans to release it in October 2014. What do you think?
