Kids’ Competition: Draw Your Favourite Book Character

Kids’ Competition: Draw Your Favourite Book Character

Simply ask your little one to choose their favourite book character and send us their very best drawing of them to enter! We want to see big, hairy Gruffalos, Giraffes doing their funkiest dances moves, Dennis and Gnasher pulling their naughtiest pranks, Cinderella twirling at the ball, Aliens stealing underpants and your most magical and colourful Rainbow Fairy. We can’t wait to see all of our favourite characters in your pictures!

To enter, simply take a picture of your child’s drawing of their favourite book character and either post it to our Facebook wall or tag it with @WHSmith on Twitter. To ensure your entry is counted make sure you include the hashtag #WHSBookmarks and one of the following hashtags to identify your child’s age – #DrawU5, #DrawU10 or #DrawU16. We’ll be picking three winners from each age group!

For example, “The Gruffalo by Maisy aged 4 #WHSBookmarks #DrawU5 @WHSmith”
