My Friend Rabbit
by Eric Rohmann
“Eric Rohmann’s hand-colored relief prints express a vibrant energy through solid black outlines, lightly textured backgrounds and a robust use of color,” said Pat Scales, chair of the 2003 Caldecott Award committee on Rohmann's Medal-winning work. "The black frame cannot contain Rabbit’s enthusiasm in this dramatic visual romp, as the characters tumble and spill from the page and back on again. The artist shows his respect for his audience and keen understanding of picture book design. Whatever they do and wherever they go, children will claim Rabbit as their friend."

Clara and Asha
by Eric Rohmann
Rohmann introduces a girl who leads a fascinating nighttime existence. " 'Clara! Time for bed,' my mom calls. But I'm not sleepy, so I open my window... and wait for Asha." Rohmann has perfected the art of letting the pictures tell the story: here and throughout, he lets the image deliver the punchline. In this small-scale, bedtime picture book, Rohmann offers youngsters a taste of power, liberation and joy-and a good joke on the final page.

The Cinder-Eyed Cats
by Eric Rohmann
Beautiful oil paintings and rhyming prose bring to life a young boy’s fantastical journey to a tropical island where cinder-eyed cats creep like shadows, boats sail above the sea, and whales soar across the sky. Booklist called it "A beautiful book that readers will turn to again and again."
