The Super-Secret Diary of Holly Hopkinson – Funny Doodle Competition!

I’m Holly Hopkinson and this book The Super-Secret Diary of Holly Hopkinson is the memoirs of ME, aged almost ten, written in my own fair hand so you they don’t have any of the rubbish adults usually put in, thank you very much!

I’ve just moved to the countryside – which is a TOTAL DISASTER! There’s no Wi-Fi and there’s animal poo EVERY WHERE! But then for my birthday, my eccentric aunt gave me a magic pocket watch, which I can use to hypnotise and CONTROL people and has led to the MOST unexpected things -maybe the countryside isn’t so bad after all!

As well as writing I love to draw doodles in my diary, especially about all the funny things that happen. So now I’m challenging YOU to draw a funny doodle about YOUR OWN. It can be about anything you like – just use your brilliant imagination and make it as funny as you can!

The doodles that make ME (and my publisher – ha!) laugh-out-loud the most will WIN a copy of my book and a set of some other brilliant books from HarperCollins Children’s Books.
