I was so delighted yesterday to find out I had won a copy of Peter Carnavas' latest picture book, "The Great Expedition". I have recently come to love Peter's books. Each one is a gem.
Some weeks before that I won a copy of Catriona Hoy's "George and Ghost". I was excited then too. Both books were ones that I really wanted so the opportunity to enter a competition to win them was great fun.
On Mother's Day I entered another competition and won two picture books, My Mum’s the Best and also I Love My Mummy! through Kids Book Review. I felt pretty pleased with myself I must say. I'm looking forward to reading my new books. As a writer, it's a pleasure to read and also a learning experience.
