Horror Heights competition - win a name in the book and a virtual visit!

‘A great read. Slimey delicious fun from start to finish!’ – Jonathan Ross

Welcome to Horror Heights: can the children who live here conceal the strange goings on behind closed doors? GOOSEBUMPS for a new generation, by award-winning comedian and CITV presenter, Bec Hill.

The first book in the ghoulish new series, THE SLIME, follows a young girl whose failed slime experiment suddenly comes alive! The second book in the series, NOW LIVESCREAMING, follows a child who swaps lives with his favourite gaming influencer, only to discover he is trapped on screen!

Both books include dyslexia-friendly font and a hugely fun interior design, including a flip book element.

To celebrate, Hachette Children’s Group have a ‘draw your very own ghost’ competition to win their name in third Horror Heights book and a virtual or in-person author event with author Bec Hill. The winner will be chosen at random. The time of the author event is TBC, based on Bec’s schedule and the school’s availability.

You can download the entry sheet below and can find out the terms and conditions and how to enter here.

Deadline for entries is 30 November 2022.

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...
