Smoky Night by Eve Bunting, illustrated by David Diaz - caldecott

From The Bulletin:
Diaz has not been afraid to take risks in illustrating the story with thickly textured paintings against a background of torn-paper and found-object collage. Without becoming cluttered or gimmicky, these pictures manage to capture a calamitous atmosphere that finally calms.... Both author and artist have managed to portray a politically charged event without pretense or preaching.
