The Polar Bear Explorers’ Club - Postcard competition

The Polar Bear Explorers’ Club

It sounded like a respectable and worthy enough death for an explorer – tumbling from an ice bridge to be impaled upon a mammoth tusk – but Stella really, really didn’t want that to happen, just the same.

A gorgeously imaginative and snowy middle grade fantasy adventure combining the magic of Peter Pan, the chaos of A Series of Unfortunate Events, and the thrilling icy adventure of Northern Lights.

To celebrate this book’s publication, Faber and Faber have created a competition which promotes imaginative thinking, creative writing and drawing.

You can read a review from a Summer Reading Challenge child here.

How to enter

The children have to imagine they are on an exciting expedition like Stella, Shay, Ethan and Beanie. They have to draw and write a postcard which they would send from their expedition.

The winner will of the most creative postcard will win a copy of the brilliant Polar Bear Explorers’ Club by Alex Bell.

Please make sure the children’s name and your contact email are on the entries so that we can get in contact if they win.

You can send us the entries by email, to Kimberley.Sheehan@readingagency.org.uk.

Or by post, to

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
