This week, Catriona Hoy is visiting Kids’ Book Capers on her blog tour to celebrate the launch of her new picture book, George and Ghost.

On Friday she will be giving away FIVE copies of George and Ghost to our readers.


For the competition you will need to think of a hard question that a child you know has asked or that you asked as a child.

On FRIDAY, come back here and we’ll tell you how to enter.

Five difficult questions will win a copy of Catriona’s beautiful new book.

Footnote: As we are celebrating the Australian release of George and Ghost,  the author has advised me that four of the five copies will be awarded to Australian Readers.

Don’t forget to come back to Kids’ Book Capers on FRIDAY to read all about George and Ghost and enter the competition.

  1. I was the eldest of 3 and whilst mum was pregnant with my brother, who was 5 years younger than me, I asked a lot of questions. Mum told me that one day I asked her why my brother was attached to an umbilical cord ….and before she could try to explain I looked at her and said I know … so he wouldn’t fall down your pants !! She still laughs about it over 30 years later.

  2. My three year old has an interesting take on colours. He knows all of the names of them but when we sit with his cars and I quiz him, “What colour is this car?” he’ll say blue when it’s green, or yellow when it’s white, red when it’s black. I pointed to a blue car and asked him, “What colour is this car?’ “It’s green.” he said. “No, it’s blue.” I said. He stuck to his guns and declared it green for a good ten minutes. Once we were both laughing and saying “it’s blue.’ -“it’s green.” back and forth he stopped and said seriously. “why can’t blue be green?” Why indeed?

  3. My son has high functioning autism and is very inquisitive he asks me hard questions everyday often I dont have the answers or the right ones according to him. One of the latest was
    ” Why is the sky blue, who choose that colour why cant it be red???”

  4. Thanks for your comments, Lucie, Rebecca and Kristy.

    Unfortunately, the competition doesn’t open till Friday and there are certain conditions of entry so you will have to come back on FRIDAY to enter the competition as per the guidelines.

    Thanks for your interest and enthusiasm. On Friday I will post the exact details of how to enter.

    Kind regards.
