MBFR Finalists at Puffin Towers... whoop!

MBFR Finalists at Puffin Towers – whoop!

This summer has been AWESOME… hot, happy and mega-busy! I’ve been lucky enough to meet lots of my lovely readers, too… you can see some of the kids I met at my events at Carfest North and the Edinburgh Book Festival here! The music for this cool slideshow was written and performed by Dream Teamer Zoe S – what a talent! If YOU fancy starring in a CCTV slideshow, send in a photo (high-res if possible) of you reading one of my books here… I’ll be making another reader slideshow soon, so make your pic as cute/ cool as you can and with luck it will be included!

I’ve been busy getting a few comps up to date too… you can see the winners of the LOST WRITING COMP here. Well done to all who entered… if you fancy testing your skills in writing stories or poetry, check out our NEW WRITING COMP too. Who knows, you could be a winner next time!

Speaking of winners, I am pleased to announce ELLA & ORLI are the winners of the My Best Friend Rocks Comp 2013! You can see some of the fantastic shortlisted entries here. Ella and Orli’s family have asked for their entry not to be broadcast, but trust me it was wonderful – they are very worthy winners. I will be asking Ella and Orli to tell you more about how it feels to be the MBFR winners soon! Big congrats to the other shortlisted friends I met at the MBFR finals, too. Neve, Jessie, Isabel, Lauren, Samantha, Olivia and Ella will all be acting as FRIENDSHIP AMBASSADORS for me this year, and you’ll be hearing more from them on the website soon. We have some very exciting plans in store!

If you’re back at school now, enjoy – and if you have any advice for new Year Sevens/ S1s, or anyone starting a new school, share it here. Let’s make September super-cool!


Comments on SO LONG SUMMER…

  1. yep I know they are AMAZING!!! I think they should so make proper films of those books and I know they have cctv which is amazing but still it would be so cool to see everything for yourself.

  8. Hello! This is very funny because I was at school the whole time (pretty much) and for us here down under winter has just finished! I was just wondering if anybody knew when the next Chocolate Box Girls video was going to come out? It’s okay if no one does 🙂 I love them so much – they are really exciting and accurate (though, speaking through accuracy to the books, I do wish all the girls had shoulder-length hair or shorter to match the story!)

    Bye 🙂
