393: A signed copy of The Extincts by Veronica Cossanteli plus a cameo for YOUR PET in Veronica’s next book

The Extincts by Veronica CassanteliITEM: A signed copy of The Extincts, plus a cameo for YOUR PET (species/breed/name/peculiar characteristic?) in Veronica’s next book.

George loves to help out at hidden Wormestall Farm, even though it’s full of extinctly scary creatures, like the dodo in the dog bed and the dinosaurs in the duck pond. When Mortifer the giant basilisk goes missing, it’s up to George to find him before wicked taxidermist Diamond Pye can add to her stuffed animal collection …

Veronica works in a Southampton Junior School where she is best known for keeping a stuffed tarantula in her cupboard. She lives with her son and assorted cats and seems, rather by mistake, to have opened a Refuge for Distressed Reptiles…

About Candy Gourlay

Growing up in the Philippines, Candy Gourlay wondered why all the books she'd ever loved didn't resemble her steamy, tropical home in Manila. As a result, it took her years to fulfil her dream of becoming an author – and years to learn that Filipino stories, too, belong in the pages of books. Her latest novel is BONE TALK, set in 1899 and told from the point of view of a boy from a headhunting village during the US invasion of the Philippines. She has just published her first picture book, IS IT A MERMAID – about a dugong who thinks she's a mermaid. Candy's other novels, TALL STORY and SHINE, have been listed for many prizes in the United Kingdom such as the Carnegie Medal and the Guardian Children's Book Prize. Both novels won the Crystal Kite Prize for Europe and Tall Story was awarded the National Children's Book Award in the Philippines.
