A true story about a song and a story in which the heroines are letters from a familiar popular song ... a broom that looks like a lion and a boy and his porcelain piggy-bank... and a special book with three Grimm Brothers fairy tales that turn into a giant poster when you read them.

These are the heroes of the illustrated books that have won the Israel Museum Ben Yizhak Prize for illustrated children's books for 2016.

The exhibition includes a selection of the prize-winning illustrations], together with letters that were written and drawn by illustrators especially for the exhibition.

Honorable Mention was awarded to Naama Benziman for her illustrations of Amelia; Aya Gordon-Noy for her illustrations of Alphabet; David Polonsky for his illustrations in Breaking the Pig; and Roni Fahima for Hyacinth, a Story about Friendship and Song.
