As always, the winners were selected by a panel of three judges, who based their decision purely on artistic merit. On a rainy weekend in the countryside — with no electronic devices allowed — a young girl feels irritated until she steps outside and into the deep satisfactions of time spent in nature. A cat named Plume stalks this compendium of birds, each page a careful study of one species and the details of its feathers. The life of the Supreme Court justice is a story of a girl who overcame the overt and covert sexism of her time to follow her drive to fight for equality.

We are willing to erect many defenses to hedge against that loneliness and fortress our fragility.
Pick a Pine Tree by Patricia Toht. Anticipation builds throughout this rhyming, ritual account of choosing and bedecking a tree. Everyone in the blocky, soft-glowing images is beaming, from people to pets to plump Santa ornaments; by the end of the book, readers will be, too. Mopoke by Philip Bunting. The Twelve Days of Christmas. Gorgeously gilded, darkly leafy and understatedly humorous, this richly textured version of a well-loved carol features frog lords a-leaping and woodpecker drummers, as well as partridges, pears and calling birds in ink, watercolour and collage.
