Scholastic New Zealand are publishing some wonderful new picture books in July, including books about birds, dinosaur dads, and a retelling of a piggy tale. The best part is that they’re all by New Zealand authors and illustrators! I’ll be reviewing them here on the blog throughout the month, but here’s your chance to get your hands on them.
Thanks to Scholastic NZ I have a pack of their wonderful new picture books to give away. The pack includes a copy of One Little Fantail by Anne Hunter and Dave Gunson, My Dinosaur Dad by Ruth Paul, and The Three Little Pigs retold and illustrated by Gavin Bishop.
Thanks to everyone who entered. The winner is Debbe.
Rachael King’s Red Rocks was my favourite for the 2013 New Zealand Post Children’s Book Awards. Although it didn’t win the award, it’s a winning book in my opinion. As part of the New Zealand Post Children’s Book Festival in Canterbury we gave away copies of Red Rocks to children at every school we visited.
Luckily for you, we had a few copies left over at the end of the week so I’m giving away 3 signed copies of Red Rocks here on the blog. All you have to do to get in the draw is enter your name and email address in the form below. Competition closes Wednesday 10 July (NZ only).
Thanks to everyone who entered. The winners are Stephanie, Joy and Sandra.

Like many of you, I can’t go walk past a bookshop without going inside to have a look. Often I emerge minutes (or hours) later with books that I don’t have the money for or time to read, but I now have new worlds to explore and friends to make. While walking past a chain bookstore this morning I noticed their sale table had some awesome books on it for a fraction of their normal cost so I grabbed some to give away here on the blog.
I have 2 sets to give away of:
- Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness
- This Dark Endeavor by Kenneth Oppel
- Flip by Martyn Bedford
All you have to do to get in the draw is enter your name and email address in the form below. Competition closes Friday 10 May (NZ only).
Thanks to everyone who entered. The winners are Lynley and Annie.
