What the jury said:

“An embellished cover with gold laminated detailing draws the reader in, plunging us into an adventure set in the Venezuelan jungle. With notes, botanical sketches, and scribblings, this notebook-format volume has us thinking, “is this real?” A beautifully-crafted editorial project, it will also appeal to older readers interested in stories with lots of magnificent drawings.”
