Cheeky cover competition

Red Kite

A local children’s author is offering half the profits from his debut book to the child who designs its new front cover.

Mat Waugh’s book of short stories, Cheeky Charlie, currently features a cover designed by the author and sells on Amazon for £4.99.

The book has an average user rating of five stars, but, having taken it with him on recent school visits, Mr Waugh, pictured left, became convinced there was room for improvement.

As well as entries from children, teachers are encouraged to submit class entries, with any profits going back to the school.

“It seemed only fair that I should share any profit too. It’s unlikely to make either of us rich, but it’s great fun.”
