Over on the Summer Reading Challenge website the winner of our latest competition has just been announced. Laura M from Oxfordshire is the first ever winner of the Spring Finish the Comic competition!
In partnership with The Phoenix comic we challenged children to complete a comic started by Bunny vs Monkey creator Jamie Smart, with a prize of a year's subscription to the comic as the prize.
The competition follows on from the finish the story competitions that take place each summer, and is designed to get kids excited for this year's Mythical Maze-themed Summer Reading Challenge.

The Phoenix is a weekly comic founded by publisher David Fickling and featuring work by top UK illustrators including Sarah McIntyre, Neill Cameron, Jamie Smart and Dave Shelton. The Finish the Comic entries will be judged by the editor of The Phoenix and a panel of contributors.
Will Fickling, editor of The Phoenix comic, says: "It's fantastic that Bunny vs Monkey as been selected as the first comic taking part in the Reading Agency's Finish the Comic competition. All children seem to love Jamie's wonderful artwork, storytelling and sense of humour and we can't wait to see the entries!"
