This is the challenge for little artists!
Wombat Books has been running the Illustration Challenge for a few years now and each time there have been some amazing artworks from the kids of Australia that have won a spot in a picture book written and published by Wombat Books.
Care for Others Challenge
In November, we're running the Care for Others Challenge, which is a writing challenge aimed at encouraging primary school-aged children to develop a better understanding of consideration and care when it comes to people that are different from them.
Within The Ward Book Draw
In the beginning of October, in celebration of the release of Emily Larkin's Within the Ward, we're having a book draw! Purchase a pre-order of Within the Ward for an entry into the draw to win a copy of The Pilgrim's Progress, a novel that is mentioned in Emily Larkin's novel quite a few times! The Pilgrim's Progress is being generously sponsored by Books @ Stones, the lovely little bookstore that has made Stones Corner, Brisbane, its home.
Harrison Craig Virtual Excursion
"Harrison Craig overcame his stuttering and went on The Voice because he didn't give up!" Harrison's story is told in a picture book, Harrison's Song, but you can have Harrison come to your school (in the virtual world!) and tell the story to you himself!
His workshops aim to help children overcome challenges and achieve their dreams, whilst also exploring anti-bullying and resilience!
