Awesome alliteration PLUS crazy competition!

Now this: a new post for Holly’s Fun Corner! And a clue to it is in the title!
Alliteration is very fun. You can make all kinds of whacky ideas up with words.

Like ‘mushroom’. It is extremely funny as a word!

Alliteration means a group of words that all begin with the same letter. Here’s an example:

‘A mighty, mushy mushroom.’

That alliteration sentence makes sense. It is about a mushroom.

I am now about to make one up that doesn’t make sense in alliteration:

‘A Micky Mouse mitchy mushroom.’

That one did not make sense.

Sometimes I wish I could do alliteration all day. It is a fun activity that gives you the giggles.

But I want to hear some of your ideas. All you need to do is write them down and send them to us for the Alliteration Competition.

Prize: a special present from Oxford!!!

Send us a sentence with your best alliteration – it can be about anything you like and it doesn’t have to make sense, as long as it includes alliteration.

Entry Rules:

  • For children aged 4 to 12.
  • Please post your entry onto the Childtastic Books blog  in the Comments Box.
  • Include your first name and age.
  • The competition is open until Friday 3 August 2012.
  • We will announce the winner the following week and post the name and entry on the site.





Childtastic Books started out as a collaborative blog, written by me and my young daughter Holly. Now she's nearly a teen, she's off doing exciting and new things but I am still here, reading, writing and reviewing books for children and young adults of all ages. I miss her input but I hope she will pop in from time to time to do some guest posts! A little about me - I have just finished an MA in Children's Literature from the University of Roehampton (result pending, eeek) and am a part-time primary school librarian. The other part of my time is spent writing and editing, my own work and others, and I am waiting for my first non-fiction book to be published - a teacher resources pack for Handa's Surprise. I welcome comments and love to hear from visitors to this blog. Please note though that, because of time constraints, it is rare that I can read and review books from self-published authors. I receive so many requests and feel badly about not being able to keep up with them all. Thanks for visiting! Sam
