The Hairy Faerie
We have another competition for you, we are giving away two copies of The Hairy Faerie by Joseph and Sparkle D’Lacey. This is Joseph’s first foray into Children’s Literature and I have to say it’s really good.
Joseph (and Sparkle of course) have kindly given us two copies of The Hairy Faerie to give away as competition prizes. All you need is a child aged between 5 and 9 (we’d prefer you to have got them in a legitimate manner, no kidnapping please) and we’ll tell you what they need to do in a moment.
What if you woke up one morning as hairy as a Yak?
Worse, what if, when you tried to cut the hair off, it grew back even thicker?
Worst of all, what if you couldn’t get rid of the hair without magic – and you didn’t know any spells? Waking up hairy is bad enough for hurnans, but Mary Moffett is a faerie and if anyone sees her like this she’ll be banished from the faerie kingdom forever.
Unfortunately, the queen of the faeries is expecting Mary to deliver one of her famous mushroom and nettle crumbles. But Mary is so hairy she can barely see, let alone bake, and General Sleed of the Queen’s Brigade is on his way to arrest her with a troop of fifty heavily-armed faerie warriors!
Luckily for Mary, her best friend, Deetle McBeetle, arrives first – but time is running out. Deetle knows someone who can help but it will require a perilous journey. Can Mary and Deetle make it past the Hogsquashers and Nugginpluckers in Midnight Wood?
If they do, can they find the old faerie wizard known as Pink? Even if they can, will there be time to solve the mystery of where all Mary’s horrible hair came from and how to get rid of it before Mary is sent away from the kingdom forever?
The Hairy Faerie is a story about how friendship and a bit of determination can create the kind of magic that will fix even the worst situations…
What we want is a scary poem, it doesn’t have to rhyme, just as long as it’s scary and it’s original.
You have until midnight on Friday October 30th(UK) to send in your entries via email with Hairy Faerie in the title. When I have received all the entries I will turn them into images and upload all of them to the Hairy Faerie album, Joseph and Sparkle will take a look through your entries and combined with your votes, they will decide on the winners.
Thank you so much to Joseph and Sparkle for the competition prizes. I can’t wait to see your entries.
Good luck everyone, I can’t wait to see your entries!
