Competition to win A Year with Marmalade

This Wednesday the 29th August Australian illustrator, Heath McKenzie will be sitting with me Under the Apple Tree and sharing his illustrative process for the picture book, A Year with Marmalade, right here on the blog. So pop back - I promise there'll be apple pie.

When I was 7 years old my best friend moved away for always. She left me a couple of her toys and I cherished them. Losing a friend when you are young is a difficult experience, but having something or someone to remember them by helps to ease the pain. 

In the delightful new picture book A Year with Marmalade by author, Alison Reynolds and illustrator, Heath McKenzie, Ella's best friend must go away for a whole year. Unfortunately she cannot take her beloved cat, Marmalade, with her and so she asks Ella to care for him while she is gone.
