Create an animal character to appear in Jennifer Killick's new book

We are very happy to announce a brand new writing and drawing competition to create an animal character to appear in the next hilarious book by Jennifer Killick, Alex Sparrow and the Furry Fury, sequel to the Summer Reading Challenge selected Alex Sparrow and the Really Big Stink. We are running the competition with the marvellous new children's magazine, Scoop
Best friends Alex Sparrow and Jess have crazy super powers and have been recruited by the Professor to solve mysteries at their school. They already have the help of Bob the Goldfish who is very clever and very anxious and they need another pet or animal that can help them solve the next mystery. 
The competition is open to all children in the UK and Ireland for ages 7-12 and the deadline for entries is 29 September 2017. *THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED*
The winner will see their animal character written into Alex Sparrow and the Furry Fury (out spring 2018), an advance signed copy, their name in the acknowledgements in the book and a school visit from the author.
