I totally get why Caldecott had a medal named after him. His illustrations are so expressive. I thought this book was pretty funny. Here's a sample line: "They hunted an' they hallo'd an' the next thing they did find
Was a bull-calf in a pin-fold, an'
that too, they left behind.
Look ye there!
One said it was a bull-calf, an' another
he said "Nay;
It's just a painted jackass, that had never larnt to bray."
Look ye there!
A silly rhyme about hunters who keep finding things, disagreeing about what they are (but in a jovial manner), then leaving the item or person behind and continuing on their journey. I did rather like the page with the pig...he looks so content and really quite adorable. It is fun to read a book illustrated by Caldecott himself and while they aren't my favorite illustrations ever, they certainly are expressive and interesting.

Known chiefly for his book illustrations, Caldecott was a gifted artist respected by his contemporaries. The Caldecott Medal which is given out each year for the most distinguished children's picture book is named for him.

Sometimes his name is transcribed as Ralph Caldecott, for example on the book "The Babes in the Wood & The Elegy of the Mad Dog."
