What the juries said:

 

?
IPARAPA YAMOOYAMOO

 

“In her book, Lee Gee Eun creates a small world regulated by the special needs and sensitivities of its tiny inhabitants. Threatened by a big monster, the population shows a strong sense of community. The distinctive personality of every character is depicted with simple strokes that nonetheless convey great detail. Emotions are explicit in the faces and body language of the creatures as they battle against the monster in a story that is both entertaining and funny but also prompts reflection on how we welcome and accept the other into our midst."

THE YULU LINEN

 

“Which child does not dream of creating something? What happens to many of those dreams? Cao Wenxuan and Suzy Lee join forces to tell the story of a talented hardworking girl who overcomes her self-doubts and picks up her paintbrush to paint again after a setback. This internationally acclaimed dream team expertly conjures the storm within a child who is weighing her abilities for the first time. Suzy Lee moves away from the light colors that her earlier works favor and uses bold black ink, and new ways of exploring textures, all while keeping the child at the center of this powerful story.”

RICE RICE RICE

 

“This book draws surprising connections between the written characters and the reality of actions and objects involved in bringing rice from the field to the table. The rhythmic and playful words, and delightful congruence between type and illustrations present the youngest readers with an original nonfiction volume on natural phenomena.”

 

?
SO MUCH SNOW

 

“This is a visually innovative book that positions readers variously on each page, making a point to confuse and destabilize, forcing them to wonder if they cannot understand what is happening because they are standing in the wrong place. Flexible perspectives, patience, and attentiveness allow the reader to eventually understand where the book is taking them. This is a book that makes the reader think critically and question how much clarity is owed to a reader at all.”
