Win a kitchen mixer worth over £100 and two picture books for children

the runaway pea competition

To celebrate the publication of The Runaway Pea Washed Away by Kjartan Poskitt and Alex Willmore, we’ve teamed up with Simon & Schuster Children’s UK to give one lucky gransnetter the chance to win an electric kitchen mixer worth over £100 and a copy of the book, plus its prequel The Runaway Pea.

In The Runaway Pea Washed Away, The Runaway Pea returns for a second hilarious adventure.

When the rogue pea finds himself spinning down the plug hole, surely he’s in for a terrible time in the murky glurky sewers? Not this pea! Everything is an adventure. Everyone is a friend. But is all as safe as Pea assumes, or might he yet end up as someone’s dinner?

A fall-over-yourself funny sequel to the bestselling The Runaway Pea, this is the perfect book to share with your grandchildren.

Praise for The Runaway Pea:

"A runaway success" – Philip Ardagh

"Kids will enjoy . . . Poskitt’s lively rhyming verse as the pea plops, splashes, bangs and twangs his way across the kitchen" – The Observer


The Runaway Pea Washed Away by Kjartan Poskit and Alex Willmore is published by Simon & Schuster Children’s UK on July 23rd and is available online and from all good bookshops.
