Ah, November has officially begun, meaning a kick-off to holiday eating, shopping, shopping, shopping, and most importantly: the announcement of our October Faber-Castell Scribble Your Story contest winner!  It was a tough one this month, but in the end, Skylar took the cake with her nail-biting adventure, “My Trip to Skylar Island.”   As the author herself states, this tale is about “a regular trip gone wild…”

Our guest judge this month is Gitty Daneshvari, author of one of Scribble Press’ favorite children’s book series, School of Fear.  She has a background in film development and is also the author of the adult novel The Makedown.  She lives in New York City, by way of LA– bicoastal just like Scribble Press!  You can learn more about Gitty and her fantastic series at www.enrollinschooloffear.com.

For her prize-winning book, Skylar will receive $100 of art supplies from our friends at Faber-Castell, including a Young Artists Essentials Gift Set. Here’s what Ms. Daneshvari wrote about Skylar’s book: “Choosing the winner for the Faber-Castell Book of the Month contest was incredibly difficult! All the books were original and impressive in different ways. …But ultimately, I had to choose ‘My Trip to Skylar Island’ as the winner. Skylar created an adventure filled story which kept the reader glued to the page, wondering what would happen to our protagonist on the high seas in the middle of a storm. I was especially impressed with Skylar’s descriptions and use of vocabulary. I look forward to reading more from Skylar and the rest of the talented authors soon!”

Congrats again to Skylar for writing such a fun story!  We’re hoping this turns out to be a recurring character… sequel, anyone?  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.  We can’t wait to see what fun November brings!
