Awards & Selections

  • Highly Commended in the Junior Design Awards best classic picture book 2012



“Amanda Hall’s beautifully textured use of crayon is particularly successful in her depiction of animals where the light and shade suggests the weight or suppleness of their bodies.Her artworks are framed tableaux in which elements break free to dramatic effect.”

— Books for Keeps – Book of the week


“this collection is set apart by its sensitive illustrations from Amanda Hall, whose graceful depictions of people and animals bring these fables alive.”
