"I like the funny storyline and the "hole" at the back of the book as well as the illustrations are hysterical."
Victoria Clement: King Jack and the Dragon, by Peter Bently
"I think it will win because it is funny and cute and great for all ages. The illustrations are great because they look like they were sketched."
