Bogs are My Bag - A Toilet-Inspired Competition for Kids!

“Bogs are My Bag” Competition for Kids

 

In honour of the “Books Are My Bag” Campaign and our fabulous new Chris Riddell-dedicated loo (adorned with Chris’ very own loo-doodles) we are launching a “Bogs Are My Bag” Toilet-inspired Illustrated short story or poem Competition.

 

The competition is open to anyone of primary school age in the UK and the story must be no longer than 2 pages long.

 

Chris Riddell himself will judge the winner from a shortlist chosen by the team at Mr B’s. The winning story will be framed and displayed at Mr B’s in our Chris Riddell loo and the winner will be presented with signed hardback copies of all 5 of the Ottoline and Goth Girl books written and illustrated by Chris Riddell.

 

Some inspirational links:
