The book is a compilation of six short stories written by the winners of this year's Barfoot & Thompson Young Authors Challenge. The book is illustrated by rugby legend Keven Mealamu and edited by renowned author John Parker.

The storybook competition raises money for the Barfoot & Thompson Magic of Reading programme, which provides all overnighting patients in Starship Children’s Hospital and Whangarei Hospital’s Children’s Ward with their own book to read and keep. 

What is the 2013 storybook all about?

It’s the world’s worst behaved class – until the mysterious Miss P rides up the hill on her little brown pony to sort it out. Who is she? And how does she do it?

You’ll also find adventure, excitement, fun and feeling in the other five stories, all written by the talented winners of the 2013 Barfoot & Thompson Young Authors Challenge.

Lying in wait for you are tantalizing tales: the amazing ways of mysterious Miss P; a turtle searching anxiously for his friend; a farm desperately needing water; a brave journey of discovery through a forbidding forest; a hang-gliding penguin; and 101 ways of putting off homework!

Who are the winners of the 2013 competition?

Supreme winner Grace Mitchie, from Pukekohe Intermediate School, wrote the story ‘Room 23 and Mysterious Miss P’. Find out more about all of the winners of the 2013 Young Authors Challenge.
