Wayzata Poet Joyce Sidman and Duluth illustrator Rick Allen are on a roll.
Their picture book "Dark Emperor and Other Poems of the Night" has just been honored at the Boston Globe - Horn Book Awards, one of the most prestigious awards in the field of children's and young adult literature.
This after taking home a Newbery Honor in January, and the Lee Bennett Hopkins Poetry Award in April.
Here's a snapshot of the book in video form:
There's a lovely piece on how the book came together by Star Tribune writer Kim Ode here.
Rick Allen, along with his wife Marian Lansky, runs The Kenspeckle Letterpress in Duluth.
