He received the Caldecott Medal for Kitten's First Full Moon; Caldecott Honors for Waiting and Owen; two Newbery Honors--one for Olive's Ocean and one for The Year of Billy Miller--and Geisel Honors for Waiting and Penny and Her Marble. His other books include Sun Flower Lion, A Parade of Elephants, Chrysanthemum, and the beloved Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse. Kevin Henkes lives with his family in a house in Madison, Wisconsin.
"Five chapters with short sentences, word repetition, and sweet illustrations on every page will have new readers enthusiastic about . . . the life of the little mouse and her family."--School Library Journal
"Through the earnest and oh-so-lovable Penny, Henkes speaks to children's natural sensibilities and feelings . . . A gentle story of patience . . . at its conclusion readers will be met with unexpected beauty."--Horn Book (starred review)
