Here is a fantastic competition for you to enter and show off your story writing skills.

This winter, we're looking to bring our beloved Sid the Seagull and Lizzie the Lizard characters to life in their first ever short story book. To create our 'Fairytale of Parkdean' adventure, and encourage children across the UK to get reading and writing, we're inviting all budding young authors to put forward their stories.

Our favourite entry, chosen by a panel of expert judges, will not only win the chance to see their book created in print but they'll also win a fantastic family holiday with Parkdean too! So, if you fancy yourself as the next J.K. Rowling, Julia Donaldson or Jeff Kinney, why not enter today?

Here is the link so you can submit your story, good luck and let me know if you've had a go.
