Winter Mini Challenge

WIN a complete set of hilariously funny books by Reeve and McIntyre!

Welcome to our special Winter Mini Challenge competition!

Sika and Shen are part of a wonderfully wintery race with the help of their 66 adorable pugs who help to pull their sled. Each pug has their own name and special character and most importantly their own knitted jumper.

We would love you to use your imagination to create your own perfect Pet Pug.

Perhaps your pug doesn’t like jumpers at all but prefers big floppy hats or sunglasses? The more creative you can be the better!

Enter and you could WIN a complete set of hilariously funny books by Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre!

How to Enter

Use the Let’s Draw A Pug sheet to help you draw your own pet Pug. Perhaps you could pick a name for your new furry friend or also draw some of the things that they like. We’re looking for pugs with plenty of personality!
