(On a strictly personal note, I was delighted to see Patrick McDonnell win for his picture book biography of naturalist Jane Goodall.  McDonnell is the author of the MUTTS comic strip and has used the characters in several children's books.  A review of Mutts:  the Comic Art of Patrick McDonnell was posted some months back at our blog.  You can read it here.)
