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.

IMM’s Care to Create Challenge: Write a Letter to a Key Worker!

In partnership with IMM’s Care to Create, we asked children to write a letter to a Key Worker, thanking them for all the wonderful things that they do for other people. Their letter had the chance to be shared with different Key Workers across hospitals, care facilities, police stations, transport companies, as well as our social channels!
