CONGRATULATIONS TO THE WINNERS OF THE GEORGE AND GHOST COMPETITION!
A FREE COPY OF GEORGE AND GHOST IS COMING YOUR WAY
What an amazing standard of entries we had in our Kids’ Book Caper’s George and Ghost competition. Thanks so much to everyone who took the time to enter.
Competition judge and George and Ghost author, Catriona Hoy admits that she had a difficult time making her final choices because there were so many fabulous entries.
It really, really was sooooo hard to choose. I had to enlist the help of my thirteen year old daughter! She laughed too. She even laughed at the story about her thinking Dad came out of my tummy.
So, as they say, in no particular order, here are my choices…but I really had lots of other favourites.
1. Julie Murphy (Australia) for…what is it like inside a brick.
It was so left field and in the words of my daughter…’that’s just so random, Mum!’
2. Karen Tyrrell (Australia) for ‘what is time?’
I saw a whole documentary on the BBC for that one and boy is that a dooozy to answer…even for a physicist.
3. Vickie Laurie (Australia) why didn’t I get invited… because it was so poignant and brough back memories of my own daughter’s struggle for acceptance…and my own!
4. Kay Baillie (Australia) because I’m seeing those free range sausage rolls, roaming the hills, slurping on tomata sauce (or ketchup fro our US friends).
and last but not least
5. Breanna Glass (US), for setting Grandad on fire.
I loved so many of the others though and I wish I had copies to give you all. One thing it has made me appreciate though…how tough must it be to be a commissioning editor? Really, sometimes, it just comes down to how someone feels on the day.
Thank you all so much for entering and taking part in my blog tour. I hope those of you who won will love your copies of George and Ghost and those who didn’t, look out for it in bookstores or libraries.
Finally…perhaps I’ll do it all again next month…when ‘Our Gags,’ comes out.
Thanks again to everyone who followed the blog tour and entered the competition. Congratulations to all our winners. I will be contacting you by email to tell you how you can collect your prize from Catriona.
