Maria Inês Almeida and Flávia Lins e Silva //
The prestigious magazine Visão Júnior considers “The Mystery of the Stinky Sock” by Maria Inês Almeida and Flávia Lins e Silva, illustrated by David Pintor, winner of the Andersen Prize 2015, as one of the Books of the Year 2022 for children aged 6 to 10 years. The selections are organised in three age groups that suit the three cycles of basic education, even if these recommendations always depend on the fluency and maturity of those who will read. There was room for short stories, poetry, plays, encyclopaedias and albums. A parade of extraordinary books that gave a lot of colour to 2022. Visão is a prestigious weekly news magazine in Portugal, and Visão Júnior is the only major information magazine aimed at children and young people, as well as the only one recommended by the National Reading Plan.
