It’s a wet and windy half term with a lot of glum news. A good moment then for a competition! We have three copies of Sophie Dahl’s, Madame Badobedah to give away and they are all signed by the author. Published one year ago, Sophie Dahl’s first children’s book tells the story of adventurous Mabel who lives at a seaside B&B, The Mermaid Hotel. One day a rather in-ter-est-ing old lady comes to stay with lots of heavy trunks and a beady-eyed tortoise. Somehow, the pair strike up a rather surprising friendship.
The book is not only beautifully written but includes characterful illustrations from Lauren O’Hara. A must read for children aged 5+, it would make a charming Christmas present. We are delighted to have three copies to give away. Just enter the form below to put your name in the hat.
Madame Badobedah by Sophie Dahl with illustrations by Lauren O’Hara is published by Walker Books, £12.99, buy here.
