I'm loving reading this new story from J.K.Rowling, the author of Harry Potter. This story is not about Harry or magic and it is fascinating so far. I can't wait to find out what happens to King Fred the Fearless or to 5 year-old Bert Beamish. Every day, one or two new chapters are posted on The Ickabog webpage ready to read.
For those of you who are artists, why not try entering the competition to illustrate one of the characters, scenes or even the Ickabog itself? They are looking for imaginative pictures to illustrate the book when it is published, later this year. Click on the image below to find out how to enter or click here to discover the suggested themes for each chapter. You can take a look at some of the entries already submitted in the illustration gallery. Wouldn't it be incredible if you were chosen to become a published author? Good luck!
