How Beautiful: Win a copy of this charming new story

We love this adorable tale of a caterpillar on a hunt to find out the true meaning of the word 'beautiful'.

The front cover of How Beautiful

We've fallen in love with the stunning new book How Beautiful, so we're giving you the chance to win a copy of your own!

This charming tale follows a caterpillar who is picked up by an UnKnown Thing and told that he is 'beautiful'. But what does 'beautiful' mean?

To find out, the caterpillar goes on a quest, asking the other creatures in the forest... but they all tell him different things!

A bear says honeycomb is beautiful, but the squirrels declare that leaves are beautiful, and a mole thinks his burrow is beautiful. How can the caterpillar work out who's right? Or perhaps the truth is that beauty comes in many different forms?

How Beautiful is a real delight, with a lovely story from Antonella Capetti and quirky, eye-catching illustrations by Melissa Castrillón.

We're delighted to have three copies up for grabs - if you fancy winning one, simply answer the question below and leave your details before the closing date of 11pm on Thursday, 16 December. Good luck!
