Today we are launching an exciting giveaway that gives a whole class the opportunity to have an early read of Emma Carroll’s next book and to put their questions to her in a special interview to appear on our blog.
We have teamed up with publisher Macmillan Children’s Books for a special competition to win proofs of Emma Carroll’s new book AND the chance to ask her questions.
Award-winning author Emma Carroll has returned to the world Eva Ibbotson created in her classic middle-grade adventure Journey to the River Sea. We are inviting you to journey down the Amazon and dive into the next chapter of the story with Emma Carroll in her captivating new story Escape to the River Sea. War is over and Rosa Sweetman, a Kindertransport girl, embarks on an adventure full of danger in search of giant sloths, jaguars and a place for herself.
We have a class set of up to 35 proofs of Escape to the River Sea to gift to a class of Year 5s or 6s. Better still, once they’ve read the book, the winning class will be able to put their questions about the story to Emma and she’ll answer her favourites here on BooksForTopics as part of her blog tour around publication.
Escape to the River Sea by Emma Carroll is published by Macmillan Children’s Books on 9th June 2022.
Thanks to the publishers at Macmillan, we have a set of 35 proofs of Escape to the River Sea to give away to one class in Upper KS2. The class will then have an opportunity to send Emma their questions, which will be answered on our blog near the time of the book’s publication.
To enter, follow @booksfortopics on Twitter, retweet the giveaway tweet and tell us in the comments the Year Group of the class you are entering.
The giveaway closes at 11.59pm on Sunday 3rd April 2022 and is for UK schools only.
Before you enter, please be sure that the nominated class can commit the time to write questions about the book for Emma Carroll to answer. Emma’s answers will appear on our blog on Friday 10th June.
Many thanks to the publishers at Macmillan for inviting us to run this competition with Emma Carroll.
