Winner Description: 
illustrated by David Small, written by Sarah Stewart, and published by Farrar
Winner Blurb: 

Water color, ink and pastel illutrations, combined with letters home, tell the story of Lydia Grace Finch, a young depression era heroine. She transforms her curmudgeonly uncle and his dreary urban neighborhood with her rooftop garden.

"From end page to end page, Small's use of color, light, line and perspective interprets the letters and adds new dimensions to them. The illustrations are distinguished in their emotional content. The masterful intergration of text and art will make this a perennial favorite."
