Ed Young partnered with author Gary Golio to create the book Smile: How Young Charlie Chaplin Taught the World to Laugh (and Cry) (2019). Young's sketch shows Chaplin working as a newspaper boy.

Young has illustrated over 80 books for children. He won the 1990 Caldecott Medal for Lon Po Po (1989), and Caldecott Honors in for The Emperor and the Kite (1966) and Seven Blind Mice (1991). He was nominated for the Hans Christian Anderson Medal in 1992 and 2000, and was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Society of Illustrators in 2016. Young was recognized as the 2017 Carle Honors Artist.

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.
