Quotes of the classics

  Drink me! Illustration by John Tenniel, 1865.

So many out-of-the-way things had happened lately, that Alice had begun to think that very few things indeed were really impossible.

Lewis Carroll,

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Paweł Wakuła, for Co w trawie piszczy ("In the Know")
Edyta Zarębska, for Wiki i ziarenko miłości ("Vicky and the Grain of Love")

The panel did not award the Grand Prize, because despite the high level of the winning works, the panel found that none of them quite met the high standards set by the works of the author in whose memory the competition was established, Astrid Lindgren.
