To celebrate the launch of her latest book, children’s author and illustrator Zoe Sadler has teamed up with Waterstones Newport to run a colouring competition.

‘Mysteries of the Deep’ is Zoe’s first colouring book and is packed full of fun activities to solve and beautiful images to colour in.

The competition is open to all ages; those over 8 can colour a scene from the new book featuring sea monsters, while younger artists can colour a sheet of Zoe’s lovable monsters from her Monster Messages project.

Not only will the best entries in each of the 5 age categories win colouring-in prizes and copies of Zoe’s books, their pictures will be framed and put on display in the window of Waterstones on Newport High Street.

Zoe says:

“An underwater theme for my first colouring book seemed inevitable. It was the perfect choice to showcase my sea themed work. I love to take inspiration from the Island and the sea that surrounds us. My work is also quite intricate so I think adults will love this book too!”

To enter, simply pick up a colouring sheet from Waterstones. You can also visit Zoe in her vintage caravan in the Youth Zone at the Isle of Wight Literary Festival on 14th & 15th October.

The closing date for entries into the colouring competition is 21st October. Winners will be announced at a special event at Waterstones on 28th October.
