Giveaway #476 : Win a copy of Shoutykid book 2 - closed - winner Patricia Avery


Hi there,
My name is Harry Riddles, and I live with my mum, my dad and my EVIL sister Charlotte.But now my mum is having TWINS so either me or Charlotte are gonna lose our bedroom.ALSO, Dad’s moaning that I should do more sport and not be just a gamer (which shows what he knows cos I’m actually the BEST gamer World of Zombies has ever seen). ButI’ve joined the school football team to keep him happy although if we win anything it will bea miracle cos we suck. I’ve written to some stars of the football world to see if they wanna help out, and also a bunch of people who might take Charlotte off our hands – oh and Brad Pitt’s wife to see if she wants to adopt a couple more kids, but who knows if they will write back. We’ll see. Good luck and have fun.

The funniest kid in fiction is back! Follow his life’s ups and downs told through laugh-out-loud letters, emails, texts and more! Here are a couple of examples :

Dear David Beckham, England’s Greatest Dad and Footballer, hi there
My mum said if there’s one player in the whole of England who could help turn me and my school team from a bunch of losers into the best team in the South-West, it would be you. I told my mum that’s not going to happen because you don’t live in Cornwall, but my mum said you LOVE Cornwall. So that gave me a great idea!! Why don’t you move your family down here and live your CORNISH DREAM?!! Then you could send your kids to MY school. I think Cruz is about my age, and if he’s anything like you, I can tell Mr Phillips we have some real talent on the way and maybe – JUST MAYBE – we won’t get CRUSHED in the first round of the cup. That’s all I have to say.
Good luck and have fun and GBTM soon!
Harry Riddles

Dear Sir Alex Ferguson, the greatest football manager of all time,
 hi there –I know you’ve won more trophies than any other manager has EVER won in British history, but there’s one you missed – The South-West Schools’ Cup! How would you like to help bring this home to my school, Mount Joseph’s? Before you say yes, I should warn you that we really suck at football, but if you fancy a new challenge and you’re getting bored of being retired, let me know. Good luck and have fun.

  13. Not when I was younger, but my best friend is 40 this year and I've sent her favourite actor a letter with a card inside. Hoping he'll sign it, I emailed his agent and asked them and they told me to send it to them and they would give him it. Isn't until November but sent it as he's in a play at the moment, so might not have time yet. :)
