In Pat Cummings' book Harvey Moon, Museum Boy (2008), Harvey and his lizard Zippy are locked inside the Metropolitan Museum of Art overnight. When the exhibits come to life, Harvey mounts an armored horse to escape, leaping past Samurai warriors and hungry pterodactyls.

Cummings is the creator of more than 40 books. She won the Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award in 1984 for My Mama Needs Me, written by Mildred Pitts Walter. Her work was featured in The Carle's exhibitions Iconic Images: 10 Years of Collecting for The Carle (2012) and Our Voice: Celebrating the Coretta Scott King Illustrator Awards (2018).

All proceeds benefit The Carle's mission to instill a love of art and reading through picture books.

Artwork is framed by R. Michelson Galleries using archival materials.

Winners can take their artwork immediately after The Carle Honors. Absentee winners will receive their artwork via Federal Express; a flat shipping fee of $150 per artwork will apply.
