Judges' Comments From start to finish, this book exudes a quiet confidence indicative of designers in full command of their craft. As reviewers have pointed out, Melu contains a lot of words for a picture book, but nowhere does it look cluttered. Good taste, a sure touch and a fine sense of balance rule throughout.
