Peter Sís' pastel watercolor from Ice Cream Summer (2015) illustrates a child whose passion and wild imagination lead him to see ice cream everywhere. Sís complements the sweet story with historical facts about the much-loved frozen treat.

Sís is an eight-time winner of the New York Times Best Illustrated Book of the Year and a two-time winner of the Society of Illustrator's Gold Medal. He was awarded the Society of Illustrator's Lifetime Achievement Award in 2015. His work is currently on view through October 27 in The Carle's exhibition The Picture Book Odysseys of Peter Sís.

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.
