Martha and the Tiger Party

by Jane Cadwallader Illustrated by Gustavo Mazali

Jurors’ comment: Martha and the Tiger Party does a great job of combining vocabulary young learners usually learn in the ELT classroom, creating a story young learners can read on their own, and giving us a charming, humorous story the teach the values of friendship, helping others, and health. While the story is simple, it exposes the children to a variety of grammar tenses and a proper conflict, climax, and resolution.

Online voter’s comment: An interesting story for the learners about friendship and helping. They were involved in the story and felt close to the characters who helped each other in difficult times.

Our Water, Our World

by Jane Cadwallader Illustrated by Gustavo Mazali

Jurors’ comment: Readers at this level may need some orientation on the maze (make your own adventure) story format and some background as to how this story fits into the overall story arc of the series. With these in mind, younger readers should have an enjoyable experience making their way through the adventure, supported by beautiful illustrations, “Guess what happens next” questions and a page-by-page glossary.

Online voter’s comment: This book is great as it can be used for science topics to make CLIL lessons and also to discover different countries and cultures. The pictures are beautiful and the structure with comics is attracting. It highlights sustainable development goals (SDGs).

Little Women

by Louisa May Alcott Adapted by Silvana Sardi
Illustrated by Julia Sardà

Jurors’ comment:The book plot is heartwarming with love and care amongst family members, care and attention between neighbours and the poor. Illustrations are nice and sophisticated. Margin notes really offer more reference for the readers to comprehend what is going on or why. “Think’ boxes can be used in classrooms for discussions or to provoke further thinking by the readers. The story walks the reader from normal daily life setting within a family, then to extending social interactions, hardship and climax, and back to relief and happiness – which really wins hearts.
