Caldecott Honor Winner Dies

From the New York Times:
Mr. Low’s playful graphic style lent itself to children’s picture books, which from the late ’50s to nearly the end of his life made up a large portion of his output. “Mice Twice,” about a cat that invites a mouse to dinner and is surprised by the guest the mouse brings along, was named a Caldecott honor book in 1981. He also illustrated more than a dozen other books, including “Aesop: L’Estrange” (1964), “A Learical Lexicon: From the Works of Edward Lear” (1966), “There Was a Wise Crow” (1973), “Boo to a Goose” (1975), “The Christmas Grump” (1977), “A Mad Wet Hen and Other Riddles” (1992), and “Beastly Riddles” (1993).
