Ed Emberley won the 1968 Caldecott Medal for his bold illustrations for Barbara Emberley's jaunty adaptation of the cumulative folk song about seven soldiers who build a magnificent cannon and Drummer Hoff, who fires it off.



Praise For Drummer Hoff

"The spark comes from the...wildly colored woodcuts always under control until the grand and glorious blastoff."
