Winner of 2021 Ragazzi Award in Fiction!

Lin Lian-En’s much-needed book Home is an exquisitely produced poetic consideration of space. From the rounded corners of the book to the cardboard covers and thoughtful understated use of endpapers, the book makes full use of material elements to create an inviting rich space that can be revisited endlessly… just like home. “ — Jury of Ragazzi Award
