ALA seems to be the group that presents the Caldecott. That may
partially explain the confusion, for it seems that Wolf of
Shadows was honored by the ALA.

You said that the Caldecott is for an illustrated children's
book. Wolf of Shadows has no illustrations (besides the cover
art) so it wouldn't make sense to intentionally claim that
award. But if we look back fourteen years to the time Whitley
Strieber was thinking of, we see reason for confusion:

Wolf of Shadows
Published 1985


- Outstanding Children's Book of the Year by the American
   Library Association,

- 1986 Olive Branch Award as the outstanding book of the year
   for young people on the subject of world peace,

- Outstanding Science Book for Children by the National Science
   Teacher's Assoc.
