ABSTRACT
In this article the author argues that several books that are considered graphic novels should be considered for the Caldecott Medal, an award given to picture books. Although some think such novels are mere pop-culture fluff and are a waste of time to read, the author believes such novels as Matt Phelan's "The Storm in the Barn" are deserving of the award because they meet its criteria of providing a visual experience for the reader.
