They were runners-up for the Caldecott Medal in 1982 for their illustrations of Nancy Willard’s A Visit to William Blake’s Inn and won the Caldecott in 1984 for a book they wrote and illustrated, The Glorious Flight. Eight of their books have been named as New York Times Ten Best Illustrated Books of the Year. They lived for many years in Dutchess County, New York.
