Caldecott Challenge 2000-2003

Out of the 17 book from 2000-2003, 10 of them had cats somewhere in the illustrations.
Meow-za! That's more than half!

I wish I had been keeping an accurate record from the start. I also wish that I would have kept track of dogs appearing illustration. I would love to know definitively which is more common in Caldecott award winning illustrations, dogs or cats.

The world just doesn't have enough dog vs. cat competitions.

As a cat-person who now owns a very sweet dog, I feel conflicted about which team I would cheer for.

However my gut says cats rule the Caldecotts.
