Spellchasers Competition: The Winners!

Posted on 01/06/2016 in Competitions

Beginner's Guide to Curses jacket coverThank you so much to everyone who entered our Spellchasers competition – we had HUNDREDS of entries and Spellchasers author Lari Don had a really hard time choosing the winners as they were all so good! But we only have five copies of her brand new book, The Beginner’s Guide to Curses, to give away, so Lari had to make the very tough decision.

So, if I could have a drumroll please…

The winners are:

Isobel, aged 10

Isobel said that Lari’s Fabled Beast Chronicles introduced her to a whole new world of children’s books, setting her on her mission to read as many books as she can. Here’s another one to add to your total, Isobel!

Lucy, aged 8

Lucy needs to get her hands on The Beginner’s Guide to Curses first so that she can make sure it is used for good and not evil! If her skiing-mad brother got hold of it he would make it snow all year round, and scientists might use the book to capture the Loch Ness Monster and turn him into a circus act!

P5, Aileymill Primary School

The lovely P5 class at Aileymill Primary wrote an acrostic poem to explain why they should get the first look at The Beginner’s Guide to Curses:

Spells and curses good as gold.
Please choose us because we would love to get a hold.
Each one of us thinks this book sounds amazing.
Lovely curses and nasty spells, we will love them all like crazy
Longing to read this new and exciting trilogy
Can we please win a sneak peek of this book?
How wonderful would Spellchasers be…
Aileymill’s P5 class would be buzzing like a bee
Super books by a super author
Every single one of us were inspired by Lari Dons visit
Really would be a dream come true to read this book written by you
So please consider us, we are begging you and would be so happy because we love you

ethan centaur

Ethan, aged 9

Ethan is a huge Lari Don fan, he’s read all the Fabled Beast Chronicles, and dressed up as Yann the centaur for his local gala! He even got his mum to make him a Lari Don birthday cake!

Madison, P6, Dykehead Primary School

Madison had to write her competition entry from under her teacher’s desk because everyone in her school had been turned into zombies, trolls and goblins! She needs the first copy of The Beginner’s Guide to Curses so that she can use it to break the spell and turn everyone back to normal again!

Congratulations to all the winners, your curse-breaking kits which include an advance copy of The Beginner’s Guide to Curses are on their way to you now!

And for everyone else, look out for The Beginner’s Guide to Curses in all good bookshops and online from 18 August!
