Illustration Alumnus Ethan Long's Book "Up, Tall and High!" Named as 2013 Geisel Award Medal Winner
Feb. 20, 2013 - Written and illustrated by Ringling College alumnus Ethan Long ('91, Illustration), the children's book Up, Tall and High! has been named the 2013 Medal Winner of the (Theodor Seuss) Geisel Award.
“Using few words, Ethan Long has created a book that children will enjoy on multiple levels. The humorous drawings and interactive story will have children raising flaps and reading their first words with confidence and delight,” said Geisel Award Committee Chair Carla D. Morris.
In Up, Tall and High!, "a bevy of birds perform a play in three acts, while teaching the concepts of up, tall and high. The large font, word repetition, occasional rhyming and simple, but clever illustrations support the very beginning reader’s effort to read independently. Children will delight in reading additional words hidden beneath thick flaps."
The book is published by G. P. Putnam’s Sons, a division of Penguin Young Readers Group.
