Bunny vs Monkey

Welcome to the woods, where a new evil genius has taken over!

To celebrate the latest book in the super-snug, pocket-friendly series, Bunny vs Monkey and the Rise of the Maniacal Badger, we're giving young comic makers aged 5-12 the chance to win some fantastic goodies.

We're challenging them to complete the Bunny vs Monkey comic strip. Whether they draw, paint or doodle their comic, show us what Pig and Weenie the Squirrel have found! Send us a scan or photo of their comic strip using our form below before Wednesday 3rd August 2022

We'll whittle down a shortlist of 30 entries, and the winner and runners-up will be chosen by author-illustrator Jamie Smart.

Jamie Smart's exceptional, exuberant Bunny vs Monkey comics are an addictive riot of fun and hilarity, perfect for kids 7+.
