Does size matter?

Motoko Rich reports that Hugo Cabret is the longest Caldecott winner ever. (Boy, is she sharp or what?) I wonder if any Newberys are longer. Although the neater parallel record would be the shortest Newbery: A Visit to William Blake's Inn?

Gee, I was on the William Blake Newbery committee as well as the Hugo Caldecott committee. What do you suppose that means?

The Hero and the Crown is at least ten times longer than Hugo Cabret.

It just feels that way. (Slaps self.)
