Another month, another winner! Congrats to six-year-old Sadie, winner of the Faber-Castell Scribble Your Story contest for September! In Sadie’s winning book, “My Little Unicorn,” the main character, Hornicorn, goes on a great adventure and meets many friends along the way. 

Our guest judge this month is Laura Lee Gulledge, author of the beautiful and heartfelt graphic novel, Page by Paige, which was nominated for a YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association) Award as a great graphic novel for teens. Gulledge’s illustrations are intricate and her main character is well-crafted. Gulledge shows perfectly how pictures can tell a wonderful story.

Sadie received $100 of art supplies from Faber-Castell including a Young Artists Essentials Gift Set. Here’s what Laura Lee wrote about Sadie’s book: I love tales with journeys and quests, so I was immediately drawn into “My Little Unicorn.”  The unicorn travels through different lands, picking up other animal friends along the way. They are all different and looking for where they fit in, which is something that I think everyone can relate to. Because everyone feels like they don’t belong sometimes! In the story the characters include a unicorn who has a rainbow tail, the skunk who is albino, and the redbird who is blue. Even though they see themselves as “wrong” because they are colored differently than everyone else, I think they are each more unique and beautiful because they are different. What could be more fun than a unicorn with a rainbow tail?? The drawings themselves were very colorful, vibrant, and fun to look at. My favorite drawing was on the second page with the green trees and flowers. The unicorn in the center of the page really pops! Sadie should be really proud; she did a great job with this book.”

Congrats again to Sadie! What a fun book with a great message. To read other great books written by kids, and to learn how to enter the Faber-Castell Scribble Your Story contest, check out the Scribble Press eBookshelf.
