This weekend, Childtastic Books is going to be in the Saturday Telegraph. It’s very exciting for me and my mum because we find it amazing that we are in the newspaper after only writing this blog for 10 months. So, as a little celebration, here is something that you could do for our competition.


Please write a review of your favourite book. It can be any book you like. Your review should have between 100 and 200 words maximum.

Closing date

23 March 2013

How to enter:

It would be helpful if you emailed it to us at with your name and age.


A winner and runner-up will receive a book each.

Tell everyone!

Please tell your school friends or any children you know about this competition so more children apply and read this blog. Get stuck in!



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
