Star Writing Winners – Publishing Opportunity!

We’re reprinting our first book “Night Zookeeper: The Giraffes of Whispering Wood”. If you didn’t know already, we love featuring our children’s work – wherever we can! So we decided our reprint would be the perfect opportunity to feature some new writing from our Night Zookeeper Writers on platform!

So, we set out a very special Star Writing Challenge. For this Star Writing, we challenged children to create a new magical animal and write a story about them. They had to write a minimum of 100 words. The winning stories would be chosen to be published in our reprint!

We’re very excited to say we’ve chosen our three winners! Congratulations to calmpika37, angrydeer99 and happyhorse93!

You can read the winning entries here:

The Very Golden Lion by calmpika37

Shelly the Mer-Pup by angrydeer99

Tiger Lily’s Adventure by happyhorse93

We wanted to congratulate and thank all the children who submitted stories for this challenge. They were all a delight to read and it was very hard to pick three winners!

Please be on the lookout for more competitions and opportunities like this in the future. If you’d like to get your child started with Night Zookeeper, you can sign up here.

Our New Look Animal Dens: All you need to know…

As you may have seen, we recently launched a new look for the Animal Dens (where each animal lives) in Night Zookeeper. This aims to make it simpler for your child to use and to give them more choice in the activities they do. However, we know that with any change, it can take a little getting used to so we’ve put this guide together to help anyone who is wondering how to use it. Don’t worry, all the same features are still there!

Earth Day Writing Prompts

Earth Day Writing Prompts

The Night Zoo is a very magical world indeed, but we want children to recognise the magic of the world they already live in. These Earth Day prompts were designed to try and do just that, by getting kids to engage with their imaginations and write creatively about nature, the Earth and the environment. Hopefully it will encourage them to think a little deeper about what the word “Earth” means to them, whilst developing the key skills they need to be a star writer.
