Hooray! Chris Riddell is back and his brand new picture book is a real treat.

Once Upon a Wild Wood is a joyful retelling of some of our favourite fairytales, following Little Green Raincape's journey as she makes her way to Rapunzel's party.

Expect favourites including Thumbelina, Cinderella, the Three Bears and Beauty and the Beast... but perhaps not as you've seen them before!

Chris - a BookTrust ambassador and former Waterstones Children's Laureate - recently came into BookTrust HQ to tell us all about the book, so we couldn't resist asking him to draw a couple of sketches for you.

Now, we're giving one lucky winner a drawing of Little Green Raincape herself, while another will get their hands on a fantastic image of Mother Bear!

Check out Chris drawing the illustrations below, then scroll down to enter the competition...
