Have you ever had a penpal? Or perhaps your children have one? At times like these, it could be a lovely way to connect and interact with others.

Now, new picture book Penpals Forever is here to inspire you - and make you giggle, too!

This lovely story from CK Smouha and illustrator Jürg Lindenberger follows Freddy the mouse and Annabel the elephant as they begin writing to each other - even though the size difference means that reading the notes can be a bit of a challenge!

When Freddy stops writing back, Annabel travels to the city to save the day. And will Freddy be able to return the favour?

With hilarious illustrations and themes of tolerance and acceptance, Penpals Forever is so much fun to share.

We have three copies to give away, so if you fancy winning one, all you need to do is tell us about your dream penpal and leave your details below before the closing date of 11pm on Thursday, 25 February. Good luck!
