Time’s running out to enter our Sleepy Stories competition

We're inviting children to pen their very own short story featuring Hippo and Duck for our national Sleepy Stories competition!

Our Sleepy Stories campaign aims to encourage families to keep bedtime reading at the heart of their night time routine.

We're asking children aged 6-12 to submit a short story of between 250 and 500 words that features our loveable mascots, Hippo and Duck. Renowned children's author, Anne Fine OBE will choose the winning story, which will then be illustrated and published with her foreword. 

Our lucky winner will also receive £1,000 worth of books for their school, a brand-new bed and a giant Hippo and Duck soft toy. 

Anne will also visit the winner's school to present them with their book in front of all their classmates. 

Time is running out! Entries close on 20th May.
