Win a signed picture book from our new Writer in Residence Nicola Davies

The Day War Came is an important and heartwarming picture book about child refugees, illustrated by Rebecca Cobb and written by Nicola Davies. They've both signed a couple of books, which could be yours if you win our brand-new competition...

Imagine if, on an ordinary day, war came and turned your town to rubble. 
Imagine if you had to make a dangerous journey all alone, with no welcome at the end.
Imagine you had lost everything and everyone, and then a child, just like you, gave you something small but very, very precious...

The Day War Came (Walker Books) is a powerful and moving picture book made by a fantastic writer-illustrator team. 

Illustrated wonderfully by Rebecca Cobb, and written by the talented Nicola Davies (our new Writer in Residence), it's a book that is perfect for children aged 6-9 who want to know about this sad and complicated issue that is so often in the news. 

We have two signed copies up for grabs – just enter below...
