“I had a lot of fun reading last year’s entries, although there were so many interesting and well-told stories in such a wide range of styles that picking a winner was harder than ever.
Congratulations to everyone who entered the competition—so great to see you all writing such entertaining and imaginative stories.”
— Andy Griffiths
