Bedtime Story Competition

Thank you to everyone who entered our Bedtime Story Competition in 2017! We were absolutely blown away by all the brilliant stories about friendship that were submitted. The competition is now closed, and the category winners, and overall winner who will have their story illustrated and published, have now been chosen by our judges.

2017 Bedtime Story Competition

Inspiring stories from aspiring young authors

The three winners of their age category are: Age 5-7 - Jackson Marrow with his tale ‘Jackson and the Marrow’, Age 8-9 – Frasier Cox with his story ‘There’s a Little Boy The Same as Me’ and Age 10-11 – Amy Chick with her tale ‘The Little One Said’.

The judging process

We received over 1300 entries from children across the UK. Well done to everyone who worked hard to write a great story. The judges found it incredibly difficult to shortlist our category winners and choose the overall winner.

The winning story

One child's story stood out as a moving and beautiful tale of friendship and without further ado we can announce that Frasier Cox, author of 'There's a Little Boy The Same As Me' is our overall winner! Frasier's story has now been illustrated by Alison Brown, published by Little Tiger and is now available to buy exclusively through our website.

An opportunity of a lifetime

We’ll be sharing more updates as Frasier’s story comes to life, so keep checking back to find out more.
