A new entry for the dress-up comp
December 26th, 2012
It’s Boxing Day, and I’m still full from Christmas lunch, but I promised I’d put up the next entry, so here goes.
This one is from Harry, aged 10, and is the coolest picture of Toadspit, in the snow with his sword.
One of the things I really like about the entries that have come in so far is how well people are getting into the character. Both Lily and Lilli acted the part as well as dressing up. And in this new entry Toadspit looks really stubborn, but noble too, and loyal. The sort of boy who wouldn’t desert his friends, not even when things got really bad.
I do hope we get some more entries – I can’t wait to see what people do. It’s less than a week now till the competition closes. Remember?
Midnight on December 31st!
If you need a reminder of the rules, they’re here.
And if you need a reminder of what Lian’s astonishingly intelligent, beautiful and wise cat looks like, you can see a picture of her below as she contemplates the universe, and tries to solve the age-old problem of whether or not fish are tastier than —
*brief pause while Lian wrestles the keyboard away from Miss Mouse*
[Mousie, stop it! This is my blog, not yours! And we’re talking about the competition, not fish! Why do you always want to talk about fish?????]
Ahem. Where were we? Ah yes, the competition. I’ve forgotten what else I was going to say. So I’ll just say this – get those entries in, or I will be forced to dress Miss Mouse up as an idlecat and pretend it’s not me entering.
[What do you mean, you won’t dress up? Of course you will if I tell you to! Who’s the boss around here? Mousie? Pleeeease …?]
Oh, I know what I was going to say! Remember Maddy, who sparked off this competition by dressing up as Goldie No One for Book Week? Well guess what she got for Christmas??????
Here are the pictures of Maddy’s house on Christmas morning, sent in by Neal, her dad. 🙂
