Paul Goble has one of those styles that is completely and totally his own--he's very influenced by Native American art, and no one else draws like he does. If you didn't have one of his books as a kid, you were deprived. The first spread's a bit of an exception for him, since most of his storybooks are more like the second and third, with bold colors on white backgrounds. He manages to sum up a whole geographical environment with a few bushes. A very well-deserved Caldecott winner (1979).
