CALLING ALL BUDDING ILLUSTRATORS! DOODLE SOMETHING BOOKY TO WIN LOTS OF NATIONAL BOOK TOKENS!

‘The doodle is the little brother or sister of drawing. Everyone can doodle, they don’t realise this means they can DRAW’ Waterstones Children’s Laureate, Chris Riddell

It’s time to go DOODLE CRAZY for this year’s fantastic DESIGN A NATIONAL BOOK TOKEN COMPETITION.

The overall winner’s design will be made into a real National Book Token gift card and distributed to hundreds of bookshops nationwide in time for Christmas –  PLUS you could win up to £500 of book tokens for your school and £200 each for you and your teacher! And FIVE of our favourite entries in each age category will be added to this gallery for everyone to see from the summer.

To celebrate our big birthday and to fire up your imagination, see our amazing new Oodles of Doodles gallery, featuring booky birthday doodles by over 35 TOP ILLUSTRATORS, showing you some of your favourite characters enjoying books and reading too.
