Gill Lewis the best-selling animal author helped launch and judge our Pet Tales 2016 writing competition.
And the winner is …
Jennifer Wesley age 13, who sent in a fantastic story about a colony of wallabies - Congratulations Jennifer!
Her prize is an Amazon Kindle, a VIP Pet Hospital tour where she’ll get to meet celebrity children’s author, Gill Lewis, plus a set of signed Gill Lewis books
This is what Jennifer had to say about her story and what inspired her to write it
I had heard about a colony of wild wallabies in Derbyshire, where Mum is from, and that inspired me to write about them. I love animals and I love writing, so this competition was the best for me. When I read that I ahd won, I was so happy I screamed! The prizes were perfect, because I really want to be a vet and I love reading books about animals. Meeting Gill Lewis was amazing - she is so nice and we had lots to talk about. She gave me a few tips about being a vet and an author, and I gave her a few tips about sailing. Gill and the PDSA staff were really kind, it was the best day of the year!
Three runners-up will each win a signed copy of Gill’s latest book “Pip and the paw of friendship” and a special Pet Protectors goodie bag.
Our runner’s up are …
