We’re back again for another round of festive drawing fun: the My Summer Snowman competition has returned! Our annual drawing competition is a great way to spend the holidays: simply make your own book and you could win some amazing prizes for you and your friends.

We’re inviting kids to draw their best cover illustration for My Summer Snowman. You could win 20 copies of our great picture books for your friends or classmates plus a visit from one of our amazing authors or illustrators! The books are best suited to kids aged 4-8 but we welcome submissions from any kids up to age 12.

What to do:

  1. Grab a copy of My Summer Snowman – available from AmazonThe Book Depository, or direct from us.
  2. Draw your best cover illustration!
  3. Ask an adult to scan the cover or take a good quality photo.
  4. Email the picture to info@curvedhousekids.com

Competition closes 5pm, Friday 9th January, 2015. Winner announced Thursday 15th January, 2015.

What’s up for grabs:

The winner will receive 20 copies of our Make-Your-Own books plus a visit from one of our terrific authors or illustrators. We can visit you at a school, organization, festival or even your very own drawing party – all we ask is that it must take place before 31st May, 2015. The author/illustrator will attend in person to schools in the UK, Ireland and Germany. For all other countries, we’ll turn up via cyberspace to entertain you!
