We're delighted to announce our student and school winner...
Winner of an iPad and the Young Writers’ Student Award of Excellence
Alexander Dial (10) from St Mary Gate Of Heaven Catholic Academy, Queens, NY whose mini saga 'Moneez's Adventure' was our favourite piece! Alexander's mini saga was published in Crazy Creatures - New York Monsters.
“Moneez is a creature that makes money for the bank. He resembles an elephant and sneezes bills out of his trunk, but cannot make money when wet. One day, Moneez accidentally gets out of the bank and falls into a lake. Poor people who live in a nearby village rescue him. Moneez sees how miserable and needy the people are and offers to make money for them when he dries off. They refuse Moneez and return him to the bank because they're honest. What they did not know was that there was a $10 million reward for returning Moneez!”
