If you love beautiful books, you definitely do not want to miss our competition to win a copy of Shu Lin's Grandpa!

Shu Lin joins a new school after immigrating from China, but she's struggling to fit in.

The other children are fascinated by the lunch she brings in colourful boxes, she doesn't speak English very well, and she stands alone in the playground.

But one day, Shu Lin's grandpa visits the class to show them his amazing Chinese paintings, and everything changes...
