The Book People, in association with Little Tiger Press and Save The Children, are on the lookout for any child aged 5-11, in the UK, who has an incredible bedtime story to tell!

All they need to do is write a 200 to 800 word story and they could not only win £250 of books from The Book People for them, and £250 of books for their school - but if they’re selected as the overall winner, they will see their story brought to life in their very own book, illustrated by the incredible Lucy Fleming and published by Little Tiger .

After the closing date, 8 November 2019, our judges will choose one winner from each age category. Head judge, Giovanna Fletcher, will then select an overall winner from the three category winners.

The age categories are:

  • 5-7 years
  • 8-9 years
  • 10-11 years

Children must be aged between 5 and 11 years old as of 8 November 2019. Category entry is based on the child’s age on the date of entry.

Category entry is based on the child’s age on the date of entry.
