The winner was Martin Cleaver for his translation of Letters to Anyone and Everyone by Toon Tellegen, published by Boxer Books


Letters to Anyone and Everyone by Toon Tellegen translated from Dutch by Martin Cleaver, illustrated by Jessica Ahlberg (Boxer Books Ltd, 2009)
A completely original epistolary novel composed of 23 letters from a range of creatures including a snail, an elephant, a bear and an ant - to each other and to the world around them - and all delivered by the wind. The voices are distinct and the dreams, musings and possibilities explored are delightfully surreal (can Elephant and Snail dance on Snail's house?), philosophical and gently humorous. Cleaver's translation captures Tellegren's richly imagined world and the distinctive characters and poetic voices in it.
