    Tom Burlison

    Hand-picked favourites
    We are so excited to be sharing Tom Burlison's The Incredible Journey - the winner of The Book People's Bedtime Story Competition 2018.

    Seven-year-old Tom's tale is a fun and inspiring bedtime story about the power of imagination and friendship. The two main characters, Elliot and Ruby, have many adventures: they travel through puddle portals to pirate lands, find parts of an alien spacecraft, and get chased by dinosaurs - all on their walk to school as their imaginations unlock a world of possibilities!

    Tom's story was selected as the winner of our Bedtime Story Competition 2018 out of over 1000 entries from children aged between 5 and 11. A panel of judges that included Olympic Gold medallist and Dadventures author Alex Gregory and Sara Sanchez, the illustrator of the winning book chose Tom's story because it is funny, clever and it shows how imagination can transform the way a child looks at the world.

    At least 35% of the price of the book will be donated to Save the Children, a charity that fights every single day for children's futures. Sold exclusively through us at theBookPeople.co.uk, Tom's book features illustrations from top children's book illustrator Sara Sanchez and is published by Little Tiger.

    Please note that this book is exempt from all promotions due to its charitable donation.

    If you think you know a child who could be our next published author then head to our competition page to encourage your children to enter their stories about feelings.

    And in Swimming Against the Storm, Eliza and her sister Avery are determined to save their home in a small fishing village on the coast of Louisiana. With sea levels rising, they go searching for the dangerous wolf-like loup-garou to encourage the government to save its habitat - and their community.
