Creative Competition

21st September 2018
Could our pupils design a Zoo-Wee Mama
comic strip?
As part of Read North East, the National
Literacy Trust and Penguin Random House
have launched an exciting new competition,
inspired by the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books by
Jeff Kinney. To celebrate the latest title in the
series, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The
Meltdown, the competition gives one lucky
winner and their classmates the chance to
meet Jeff Kinney at an event in Newcastle on
16 November, and win a box of Diary of a
Wimpy Kid books for their school! Five
runners up will also receive a box of books.
The competition is open to children in Years 3
to 6 (aged 7 to 11) attending school in the
North East.
To enter pupils should:
Design their own three-panel Zoo-Wee-Mama
comic strip inspired by those that appear in
Jeff’s books using the template below
The comic strip should be about something
funny that happens when returning to school
after the summer holidays.
It should include speech bubbles to show
when a character is talking and characters
and scenes drawn in a cartoon style.
The story should end the strip with the main
character shouting “Zoo-Wee Mama!” as in
the books
The competition closes on Friday 26 October
2018. Wish Shanklea students good luck!
