This is all so exciting! It's time to announce the winner of the Tottie and Dot drawing comp. I have to first say, it was TOO HARD TO CHOOSE! They were all SO good (you can see the shortlist here)! So, I had to ask Tottie and Dot to decide, and this is who they chose ...
Biggest congrats to ... drum roll please...
Joshua, age 10!
What Tottie and Dot said:
'We simply adored all the illustrations that were sent in. Who knew kids were so utterly talented? Really! We were just overwhelmed. The shortlist was incredible and it was very hard to choose, but we finally decided to go with Joshua's image because it was so imaginative--who would have thought he'd give us some brothers!? We've already asked Tania to write about Tommy and Scott--so watch this space!'
Congratulations, Joshua! You have won a signed copy of the book, a personalised letter from Tottie and Dot, lemon drop lollies and marshmallow tea, butterfly strings, activity pages and more! Your parcel is on the way and we hope you enjoy it!
Thanks again to everyone who entered! In March, I have a new book called This is Captain Cook coming out--maybe I'll run another illustration comp then!
