It's winter here in Australia and the perfect time to snuggle in with a good book to read, or win free stuff! For those who want to do both, I'm warming my hands by the heater as I bring you a 'deliciously macabre treat for folktale fans' in the form of a children's book giveaway.

Jon Klassen (I Want My Hat Back, and The Rock from the Sky) has a new children's book, and Walker Books Australia are offering readers in Australia the chance to win a copy.

The Skull - A Tyrolean Folktale by Jon Klassen is recommended for readers aged 6+, so feel free to enter below by midnight AEST Sunday 16 July 2023 and good luck!


In a big abandoned house, on a barren hill, lives a skull. A brave girl named Otilla has escaped from terrible danger and run away, and when she finds herself lost in the dark forest, the lonely house beckons. Her host, the skull, is afraid of something too, something that comes every night. Can brave Otilla save them both? Steeped in shadows and threaded with subtle wit – with rich, monochromatic artwork and an illuminating author’s note – The Skull is as empowering as it is mysterious and foreboding.
