We’ve been amazed and delighted by the imagination, inventiveness and talent that have been poured into creating so many of the entries to our Horrible Dib Dib Competition! Not to mention all the vivid colours!!!

Over the past few weeks, these entries have been dropping (or should we say dripping!?) into our mailbox – Dib, Dib, Dib! – from all over the world. We’ve received entries from India and Pakistan, Japan, Germany, the United States.  Even Iceland!

Choosing the winners has been tough. Our judge Safia Shah, the talent behind the creation of ISF children’s books, had to consider long and hard before reaching a verdict. And it was close. So very, very close!

So close in fact that we’ve decided that every entrant to the competition deserves to receive their very own hardback copy of The Horrible Dib Dib and a pack of colouring pencils. We’ll also be featuring many of the entries on our website and social media accounts over the coming weeks. So congratulations to you all!  Amazing job!
