BBC ‘500 Words’ is back!

BBC’s ‘500 Words’ is the UK’s largest children’s story writing competition for 5-11 yr olds, and there’s a host of prizes including getting their story published in this special book!

I feel dead lucky to be illustrating one of the winning stories again this year, along with: Axel Scheffler, Steven Lenton, Fiona Lumbers, Joelle Avelino and Jamie Smart. And the judges will be: Sir Lenny Henry, Charlie Higson and Malorie Blackman.

The great thing about this competition is that the focus is not on spelling or grammar, but IMAGINATION, so get your kids’ thinking juices going and enter here!
