★ 美國凱迪克銀牌獎
 

One hot summer night in the city, all the power goes out. The TV shuts off and a boy wails, "Mommm!" His sister can no longer use the phone, Mom can't work on her computer, and Dad can't finish cooking dinner. What's a family to do? When they go up to the roof to escape the heat, they find the lights -- in stars that can be seen for a change -- and so many neighbors it's like a block party in the sky! On the street below, people are having just as much fun -- talking, rollerblading, and eating ice cream before it melts. The boy and his family enjoy being not so busy for once. They even have time to play a board game together. When the electricity is restored, everything can go back to normal . . . but not everyone likes normal. The boy switches off the lights, and out comes the board game again.

Using a combination of panels and full bleed illustrations that move from color to black-and-white and back to color, John Rocco shows that if we are willing to put our cares aside for a while, there is party potential in a summer blackout.


城市裡、家裡每個人都是做自己的事
充斥著許多聲音
小女孩 想跟爸爸媽媽一起玩卻總是因為忙碌而被拒絕
忽然間 停電了
原本光亮的、吵鬧的變成了一片寂靜
一家人緩緩地點起蠟燭 依偎在一起
小女孩說我們到外面看看吧
沒想到 剎看黑暗的夜裡竟然透出許多花火
大家在屋頂上、街道上用著微微的燈 愉快地互動著交流著

凱迪克獎(The Caldecott Medal),是由美國圖書館協會所頒發的兒童繪本大獎。1938年創立。
 
獎項的目的在於獎勵前一年度出版的「給兒童的美國最傑出繪本」,選出一個金牌獎及數個榮譽(銀牌)獎,榮譽獎的數量通常為二至五個。
 
要獲得凱迪克獎的參選資格,作品必須先以英語在美國出版,且擔任插圖繪製的插畫家須為美國公民或居民。
 
評審團在評選書籍時,是以在兒童理解力為前提下,圖畫是否能完整表達出故事的主題或概念為考量重點,但書籍其他部分(文本、裝禎設計等)也會列入考慮,無需考慮該書的教育及通俗性。
