It's official. David Melling's wonderful counting book 1, 2, 3, Splosh! will be gifted to 600,000 babies as part of our Bookstart Baby pack this year. Now you can get your hands on a signed copy and an original drawing of the adorable Splosh.

123 Splosh prizes

1, 2, 3, Splosh! is a wonderful introduction to counting that follows the adventures of ten gorgeous fluffy ducks as they prepare to take the plunge into a paddling pool. The rhyming text makes it perfect to read aloud and - just like us - little ones will love the beautifully drawn, action-packed illustrations.

We were thrilled when author-illustrator David Melling agreed to pop in, sign some copies and do a brilliant drawing for us to give away. 

One lucky winner will get a signed copy of 1, 2, 3, Splosh!, plus a signed illustration. Four runners-up will receive a signed copy of 1, 2, 3, Splosh!.

Check out the video below to see David in action bringing Splosh to life for our star prize.
