Understanding Kid's Book Categories

Here's a great website that explains children's book categories.
I found some more fun books at the library yesterday. One unusual picture book has THREE illustrators competing for the reader's attention (on purpose as part of the book plot). It's the first time I've seen a book like this. It's called: Once Upon A Cool Motorcycle Dude. It's written and illustrated by Kevin O'Malley, whose work I love. The other two illustrators are Carol Heyer and Scott Goto.
You've got to check it out. The plot jumps back and forth between a sugary sweet fairy tale style and a rough and tumbling boy-driven style.
I think we borrowed every single Jon Scieszka book from the library. One of my kids obviously is hooked on them.
