Judges’ Comments Hello Girls and Boys! Is just great fun with an appealing cover design that manages to convey the pleasures within with a child-like yet structured design that perfectly balances a nostalgic aesthetic yet feels fresh and modern. Great use of cardboard on the cover echoes that of a toy box in a clever and appropriate comment on the book’s contents.
