Giveaway: Picture Book Packs by Dimity Powell Nicky Johnston

Thanks to the exceptional people at EK Books and to celebrate the latest release from much-loved picture book team, Dimity Powell and Nicky Johnston, we have three awesome picture book packs to giveaway!

Each pack includes a copy of The Fix-It Man and their new book, At The End of Holyrood Lane.

At The End of Holyrood Lane, is a poignant yet uplifting picture book that deals with domestic violence in a way that provides understanding and offers hope to young children.

Designed to be visually arresting, emotionally incisive, and ultimately uplifting, this is a tale of anxiety shown through the eyes of a small child with an intense dislike for thunderstorms — a fear shared by many young children.

To enter, simply tell us in 25 words or less what scares you (now or as a child) and how you seek comfort to overcome that fear.

Email your answer along with your name and postal address to dimity . The responses we like the best will each win a pack. Competition is open to anyone, worldwide, so long as they have an Australian postal address for delivery of the books. Please note, we cannot deliver to PO Boxes. Entries without a name and street address will be ineligible. Winners will be announced right here on our website on Monday 10 September 2018.

Competition runs from 5 pm Friday 31 August to 5 pm Saturday 8 September 2018. Adults can enter for those aged 17 and under. This is a game of skill, not chance. The judge’s decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.

In Australia one in four children are exposed to domestic violence, according to White Ribbon Australia. At the End of Holyrood Lane, seeks to provide hope to those families affected.
