The PEA’S BOOK OF HOLIDAYS design-a-cover giveaway!

Facing a long drive to get to your summer holiday this year? Or staying home and in need of entertainment? Then this is the competition for you.

Pea's Book of Holidays competition

Up for grabs:

  • a COMPLETE set of unabridged Pea audiobooks, all narrated by the fantastic Claire Morgan: PEA’S BOOK OF BEST FRIENDS, PEA’S BOOK OF BIG DREAMS, PEA’S BOOK OF BIRTHDAYS, PEA’S BOOK OF HOLIDAYS
  • signed bookmarks
  • Pea badges
  • a bag of marshmallows* for you to toast over the campfire

To win – you need to design a brilliant (or brilliantly silly) book cover.

In PEA’S BOOK OF HOLIDAYS, Pea’s sister Tink gets fed up with Enid Blyton’s boring book titles.


So Pea suggests that Tink writes her own.

Tink 2

To enter the giveaway, you need to create a book cover of your own – either for one of Tink’s funny titles, or one you’ve made up yourself. Here are some I made up:

How to make your book cover:

  1. Pea giveaway samples 2Fold a piece of card or paper in half.
  2. Think of a title. It can be a real Enid Blyton book, one of Tink’s ideas, or an imaginary book of your own. You can make it serious or silly – that’s up to you.
  3. Design your cover! You might like to look at this amazing collection of Famous Five covers over the years for inspiration. You could draw your own artwork, use a computer, or cut words and pictures out of old magazines: just make it eye-catching!

If you like, you can add a blurb to the back cover.
