I am so honoured to have been chosen for this 10th anniversary giveaway!
First of all, because How to Catch a Star is a brilliant book, can’t believe we haven’t heard or read anything by Oliver Jeffers before! Emma absolutely loved it and so did I, so simple yet so full of optimism and hope!
Secondly, because as I found out once I did my bit of research for this post, Oliver Jeffers is from Northern Ireland, our country of residence at the moment and a place very dear to my heart!!
So, here goes: Harper Collins have kindly sent me two copies of the story, one to keep and one to give away to one lucky boy or girl! In order to win it, all you have to do is like my Facebook page (if you haven’t already) and then leave a comment letting me know you have and to whom will the book go, were you to win it. I will run the giveaway for a week and then, next Saturday, I will enter the names into a random draw and let you know via my Facebook page and Twitter. How does this sound?
I will let you now delight your ears with the sweet Northern Irish lull and learn a bit about the very quirky author of the book from the man himself!
We were sent this too (rap on knuckles…must write up asap).
It’s a great story.
