Giveaway – Day 11 – Helen Stephens & Liz Pichon

Only 4 days left until we throw open the gates of Dairy Meadows and welcome you all in!

In anticipation of all the jollity to come we’ve got books and tickets to giveaway here everyday right up until the festival.  Each day will bring a new pair of star writers, and a new chance to win tickets to see them at Hay along with copies of their latest/biggest/most phenomenal books (full T&Cs below).

Today’s spiffing author illustrators are Helen Stephens and Liz Pichon

We first discovered the wonderful Helen Stephen’s in our local library.  Sat amongst all the picture books was the beautiful Night Iceberg, a charming little tale of sharing and penguins. Her most recent package of loveliness (The Big Adventure of the Smalls) has just been shortlisted for a Junior Design Award and we’re delighted to hear that she’s currently illustrating a Michael Morpurgo text set in Venice!

Liz Pichon stormed Hay last year and since then has swagged herself the Waterstone’s Children’s Book Prize 2012.  Her creation Tom Gates is the master of excuses and he’s back for a third round of mischief and mayhem in Tom Gates: Everything’s Amazing (Sort of).

To be in with a chance to win leave us a comment telling us your best excuse.

Good luck!

    My best excuse is “The thing is miss… I was kidnapped for my brains and during the process I tragically lost my homework, I’m sure if you contact MI6 or the CIA they’ll explain everything.” – I said this when I was 7 and it worked because the teacher laughed so much.
