February Star Author Competition

Leonie Thorpe is our February Star Author and she has written several stories about Archie Roach, a normal kid who’s useless at everything.  He can’t whistle, can’t swim, can’t score tries, goals or runs, and he’s got no friends.  That is until he moves to Collerden and discovers he’s good at fishing.

For the February Star Author Competition, we want you to add a comment and tell us about your talents, something that you’re really good at.  It could be a sport, like soccer or netball, juggling, cooking, writing, or playing practical jokes on your friends and family.  The 2 kids with the best answers will win a copy of 3 fantastic books by Leonie Thorpe – Archie’s Adventures, Archie Saves the Day, and The Sheep on the Fourth Floor.

All you have to do is add a comment on this post, with your name and email address (so that we can contact you if you win).  The competition closes on Friday 25 February.  See below for Terms and Conditions.

    My hobby is writing. I’ve been a poet for three years, and go to the School for Young Writers every Saturday. Here is a haiku I have written:

    Flax floats down
    the Avon river.
    Natures gondolas.

    I am about to start my fourth year at Writing School tomorrow. When I grow up I would like to be a novelist, a poet and a reviewer.

    My Hobby is Reading
    My Mum is always trying to get me to stop reading,
    because I normally read when I am supposed to be doing my work!!!
