Monstermatic Competition Winners

Earlier this month, Macmillan published a Let's Read edition of my picture book MONSTERS: An Owner's Guide. The book is illustrated by Mark Oliver and features Shambles, one of a range of self-assembly, fully-interactive, mechanical monsters produced by the Monstermatic Company.

To mark the publication, I ran a prize competition and asked readers to send me their own monster drawings. I received a collection of monstrous masterpieces from creature creators of all ages. Here they all are.

Scroll down to the bottom (if you're brave enough to go past so many monsters) to see who's won!

Tim Budgeon's helpful and mischievous UGGIE
Emma Collins sent me a selection of monsters
ELEMONSTER, part elephant, part monster
was created by the Yewman younglings. 
This looming monstrosity was created by Charlotte
The magnificently titled HUNGRY TOOTH SCARY was created by Esther Lacey
LUMMOX, the monster that despite his size,
just wants to fit in, was sent in by Kyle Andersen
FLUFFBALL by Rowan, age 6, can make his arms longer and shorter 
EGGLEGS, by Emer, age 8, can swap his head over
This is PLODASAURUS (he likes to plod)
by Lily Slaymaker, age 8
 FLIBBERSTOMP from J aged 4 

There's some terrific artwork there, so a big THANK YOU to everyone who sent something in.

I'm giving two signed copies of the book as prizes.

The first goes to the creator of my favourite monster, which is EGGLEGS, by Emer. It's a great design with a nice variety of body parts –  tentacle arms, spindly legs, batwing ears. And the interchangeable head is a great feature for a Monstermatic product!

The second winner, picked at random from the remaining entries (using the random number generator here) is the smashing selection of monsters sent in by Emma Collins.

The two winners!
