We want you to create your own amazing plot, crafty characters and sensational setting to be in with a chance of winning a money-can't-buy prize.

The winner's story will appear in a published book at Grimm and Co and be illustrated by an artist. 

The winner will also receive five copies of the book for them and their family, plus a hamper of Grimm and Co goodies, including a T-shirt, bag and magic beans. 

But it doesn't stop there - the winner will also receive a poster of their story with illustrations.

Runners-up will also receive a certificate and goody bag from Grimm and Co and a selection of top tales will also be published on the Advertiser's website.
