BookPeople Bedtime Story Competition

Book People's Bedtime Story Competition was open to children aged 5-11 years old who are based in the United Kingdom. All entries to the competition had to be based around the theme of animals had to be perfect to share at bedtime. All profits made from the sale of the winning book will be donated to Action for Children, one of the largest children's charities in the UK, which provides services and campaigning for children, young people and their families in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Bronwen Year 7 entered this competition and this is her story;

'I found out that I was one of the five shortlisted people for the Book People's bedtime story competition and just a week later, I had to go to London for the awards ceremony. The venue was at Clothworker's Hall in London. On Friday, my mum and I got on the 6:30 train to London, Paddington and then caught the tube to Monument. Once we got there, we met the other contestants, before making our way into the judging room. There were nine tables, on my table, there was me, my mum, two hosts of the competition and David Roberts, a famous illustrator. There were lots of well-known authors, illustrators and celebrities including, Ada Grey, David Roberts, Fearne Cotton, Rob Biddulph, Cressida Cowell, Mark Walden, Kate Silverton others. The stories got read out next by the authors and illustrators, before they announced the winner. I came second out of over 13,000 people who entered and received a bag full of books for the authors and illustrators to sign. After everyone had lots of photos taken, we had afternoon tea, before heading back on the train to Cornwall. '
