Here are the winners of the recent illustration competition being given their prizes by author and illustrator Sue Heap. The standard of entries was very high and it was hard to choose the three winning pictures but we agreed unanimously - the winner was Louisa McDonald, seen here holding her picture from The Return of the Killer Cat. Second prize went to Rachel Fry and third to Henry Chesterman - all pictured above with Sue during the prize-giving at the shop on Wednesday.
I have just come across a very nice article by Susan Hill on independent bookshops - see here. Regular visitors to The Woodstock Bookshop will recognise the bits that relate to the shop.
