General Note: Caldecott Medal,1991.
Winner of the Caldecott Award for 1991.
Contents: Seeing things -- Problem parents -- A waiting game -- Udder chaos.
Summary: Four brief "stories" about parents, trains, and cows, or is it really all one story? The author recommends careful inspection of words and pictures to both minimize and enhance confusion. This highly original picture book was vastly underrated and controversial until it won the Caldecott Medal. Leave readers alone with this pictorial extravaganza, full of zany tale-spinning and meticulously thought-out attempts to upend the conventional storyline. Darn good. "WARNING: This book appears to contain a number of stories that do not necessarily occur at the same time. Then again, it may contain only one story. In any event, careful inspection of both words and pictures is recommended". So warns the cover of Macaulay's truly unique book, Black and White, a playful and inventive fantasy from the author of the bestselling The Way Things Work.
