OVERALL WINNER:

We are thrilled to announce that The Chick's Day Out by Aarna (St Mark's C of E Primary School), which won the Young Creators Category of the ReadingZone Picture Book Competition, has also been announced as the overall winner of the competition.

The Chick's Day Out (Young Creators 4-7) by Aarna

OVERALL WINNER - Rachel Bright said of the winning entry:
"This story is so very well done. I can't believe you are only 6! I can tell you write lots of stories and draw pictures all the time. All that practice has made you very good! You even tackled some very difficult things to draw like a bicycle. I thought the story had fun and heart...I loved everything about it! Good story line and characters...what fun! A well deserved winner."
