Beyond Words

For the young, stories never stay on the page. It used to be that words and pictures tumbled from books thick with magic, heavy with the scent of new paper that led us to secret worlds within.

Today, stories have found fresh ways to come alive.

Below are the winners from our inaugural call for picture book, chapter book and YA fiction entries in 2012.
