You might remember my competition on Muffin publication day: we had a bear party over here at Sunny Side Up! Everybody joined in, saying who their favourite bear in children’s books was.

We had a winner, and the prize was quite special: this piece of original artwork.
And we had lots of runners up, with an army of mini-Muffins on the move, each safely housed in a matchbox.



(after the talented kids at The Imagine Festival made their matchboxes, I just hope mine are up to standard…)



I received such appreciative, kind and friendly responses from everybody. What a lovely lot you all are!



This is particularly fantastic thank you note,


complete with a most excellent signature… isn’t it brilliant?
Thank you so much, Anna!

I rather like this sort of competition. I think I’ll do some more.
