Win tickets to meet authors and illustrators at the Red House Children’s Book Award Ceremony 2012

posted in: 2. Illustrators and Authors | 4










As regular readers will know, I’ve been helping the kids at M and J’s school vote for their favourite book in the picture book category of the Red House Children’s Book Award.

There’s still time for you to take part if you wish (see this post of mine if you want to find out how to take part), and now’s also the time to take part in an amazing giveaway over at Melanie’s blog, Library Mice.


One lucky winner will get one adult and one child ticket to the award ceremony in London in February.


Many authors and illustrators will be present, including some of those shortlisted this year and winners from previous years. I’ll also be there and can’t wait 🙂


To find out how you can enter, head on over to Library Mice!


If you don’t win, or don’t want to risk it, you can also buy tickets for the awards ceremony, to be held at the Southbank Centre in London. Click here to be taken to their events calendar and to find out how you can buy tickets.

  1. If only airfare was included… How lucky you are- sounds like a wonderful event! I am still waiting for many of these titles to make it across the pond. If the titles I am missing are even half as good as a Monster Calls than I am in for a real treat!

  2. Oh, I wish that too Stacey! Would be good to meet you. Yes, there are definitely some great books on this shortlist. I particularly enjoy Grace and Sky Hawk in addition to A Monster Calls.

  3. The title, My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece, takes me back to childhood envy. Our neighbours were Roman Catholic. They regularly had visits from saints, who sat on their sideboard. We were so jealous! Our sideboards just had vases and photos.

  4. I like that image Susan! And think you’d enjoy My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece – deals with a lot of big issues with good humour.
