The illustrator here chooses to use no colors in her book. She uses the dark tones to convey the night time feeling.

The house in the Night by Susan Marie Swanson and Beth Krommes was the 2009 Caldecott winner. This book is one of those comforting books to read before bed to a child. They use of no colors sets the scene of nighttime and creates a calming tone. I am not a personal fan of absolutely no color in books but I think it's also done really well here.

This greyscale book about a silly kitten is a cute read. The use of no color was interesting and not my personal favorite but still very good illustrations.

Kitten's first full moon by Kevin Henkes was the 2005 Caldecott award winner. I think it's very interesting that a book in all grey could win the Caldecott award. It is a really cute book about a silly little kitten that thinks the moon is a bowl of milk and I did enjoy it, but best picture book for the whole year seems not quite right to me.
