Judges’ Comments A twist on traditional storytelling is beautifully reflected in a twist of traditional storybook design. The design enhances the book’s clever narration and frequently asks questions of the reader, making for an engaging and fun read. Illustrations are varied in style but bring a wonderful dimension throughout.
