We're delighted to announce that the winner and runners-up, as chosen by Cressida Cowell, are...
Anya, age 10
"What a beautiful drawing and also the beginning of a story! I loved how the illustration in the real world was set in a library, that made me think about how books are windows into other worlds. And I was so interested in how the story was going to develop, the book in the library that didn't fit in called Dark and Evil, the world that it led to with the rainbow snakes, the chupacabra, it all sounds so imaginative and fascinating. If there was a book about this, I would want to read on!" - Cressida Cowell
Sanna, age 9
"I thought this was a stunning illustration of the maps and the Which Ways with so much detail and storytelling in the drawings. I longed to know the story of the killer bunnies on Planet Sanurtain, and this made me want to leap into the storyteller's world!" - Cressida Cowell
Keira, age 13
"This was an incredibly skilful illustration, especially of the howling wolf, so beautifully drawn that you felt you could reach out and touch it. I loved the detail of the hooded figures sword-fighting, and how the X of their crossed swords, gave an impression that it might be a Which Way. " - Cressida Cowell
Joseph, age 10
"A beautiful, detailed drawing, with so much expression in the mark-making. I loved how the pencil was used in a soft and gentle way in the real world, complementing the picture saying 'Bee Happy', and how it became really excitable and wild in the Alternative World when the illustrations were of poisons and a witch, and all the scary stuff, I thought that was so clever."
Thank you to everyone who sent in their Which Ways!
"What beautiful, glorious entries there are to this competition, and I send so much love and congratulations to everyone who entered, it was incredibly hard to judge." - Cressida Cowell
