Joint 1st – Anna Holmes, Blind Eye

Joint 1st – Mike Roberts, Future Wonderful
“Future Wonderful uses an excellent framing device using the future to reflect on the past; allowing Hetty, a girl from 2155, travel back in time by way of thunderstorm to 2019. Here, she reveals the devastating effects of global warming and inspires the Lee family to co-author a book advocating for immediate environmental change to save the planet.”
Close 2nd prize – Judith Stutchbury, Hatch
“This is a beautiful, touching story about protecting our oceans focused on a young turtle, Hatch, and a sea princess, or ocean angel.”
