Hoose's book Claudette Colvin: Twice Toward Justice, about a courageous but unheralded teenaged Civil Rights activist, won the 2009 National Book Award in the Books for Young Readers category. Hey Little Ant, co-authored with his daughter Hannah Hoose, has sold more than one million copies and now appears in 10 languages.
