We are delighted to welcome them to Lendmeyourliteracy.
LendMeYourLiteracy and Random House would like to offer children the opportunity to win signed copies of “Baggage” and ” Monkey Nuts”. All you have to do is design your own comic character and write a brief biography describing their unique features.
Send in a photo of your illustration with an attached word document containing your biography to firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember to use plenty of descriptive language.
We will post our favourite entries on LendMeYourLiteracy so other children can comment on them. We will then send our favourite five to be judged by The Etherington Brothers themselves!
More details about “Baggage” and “Monkey Nuts” can be found in the Press Releases below.
