An international jury chose the winning book in five categories, taking into account the Internet votes and comments of students and teachers around the world. The judges’ comment is followed by reactions from readers of the book.
This excellent book simply but engagingly retells the story of Anne and her relationships with Marilla, Matthew and the community and environment around her. Readers will get a good sense of the charm and scope of the original. The cute illustrations are aimed at younger readers, but older readers will equally enjoy the story and look forward to reading the original.
On-line voter’s comment:
Anne’s feelings often go up and down. She makes many mistakes or does surprising things, so the story develops one thing after another. It is interesting for me. I can see Anne’s kindness and childlike character. I also can see the process of building good relationships between Anne and many other people. This story makes my mind warm. This is a good story.

Uncle Jack and the Meerkats By Jane Cadwallader; Illustrated by Gustavo Mazali, ISBN: 978-88-536-0627-3
Judge's comment: This story is good for young learners because it is a nice mixture of adventure, fantasy and reality, with an animal conservation angle. It also has a cool family theme and intelligent child characters. Well-written, nice design and fun to read.
On-line voter's comments: This book tells a very simple story,but it indeed teaches us a lot. What we learn from the book is that we should treat animals kindly and never try to keep them as pets.
I really like this book. It is quite worthy of being read by the youth. This book particularly makes difference in inspiring us to protect the animals and our environment.
This story has a brilliant educational meaning - protecting animals from being hurt by the cruel people and loving the whole world even anything alive.
Hooray For The Holidays! Author: Dominique Guillemant Illustrator: Alistar
Judges' Comment: The lively, kid-friendly design and enjoyable beach theme attract young children. There are also fun activities that make kids think. Well-written, nice fonts and excellent art.

The Great Gatsby Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald Retold by Richard Larkham Illustrator: Rodolfo Brocchini
Judges' Comment: Richard Larkham should be very proud of his excellent adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's masterpiece. Gatsby, the dreamer, lives in a magnificent house and can buy anything he wants --- except for one thing...
