I will always be with you.
Each time the wind blows,
in your leaves is where you'll find me...

We have been blown away by Stephen Hogtun's beautiful new book Leaves, so we're giving you the chance to win a copy!

This special story follows an old tree who takes a tiny sapling into his care, sheltering her from storms and shading her from the sun.

Supported by his love, the sapling grows and grows and benefits from the tree's wisdom - learning everything from how to be strong against the wind but flexible enough to bend, to how to appreciate the beauty in the world.

And then one day, the old tree's leaves begin to fall and it's time for the sapling to grow up and take her own place in the world - all while holding onto the special memories the pair of them created together.

With beautifully written text and unique, captivating illustrations, Leaves is something really special - and we have five copies up for grabs.

If you fancy getting your hands on one, simply answer the question below and leave your details before the closing date of 11pm on Wednesday, 15 December. Good luck!
