Collecting first edition Caldecott Medal winners is a popular, though challenging, endeavor. At times it's somewhat easy and sometimes, as in the case of The House in the Night, it's much more difficult. Published in a relatively small first edition early in the year, by the time the award was announced it had gone through multiple printings. This first edition features striking scratch-board illustrations by the artist, Beth Krommes, supplementing Susan Marie Swanson's spare, poetic text. The winner of the 2009 Caldecott Award in Fine condition in like dust jacket.
