Sophie's on a winning streak too !

There's always something very gratifying about winning competitions that demand a bit of effort and are judged on creativity rather than how many people you can get to vote for you  and there was much excitement at The Madhouse recently because I'm not the only one who seems to be on a bit of a lucky streak at the moment. You may remember me telling you about a competition hosted by Teach Your Monster To Read to draw a monster. This was Sophie's entry :

And she was the over the moon to learn that she was picked as the winner ! The prize was a whopping £150 worth of Usborne books and I was amazed to see just how many books we got to choose. Sophie very kindly asked to share her winnings with Juliette and Pierre (awwww) so we picked this lovely lot. There are just too many to fit in one photo (and there are still a few more to come, which were out of stock !) :
