More about Abi
Abi grew up in Scotland, in a house full of pets. She said 'each animal taught me an immeasurable amount about love and kindness. I’m a huge admirer of the work PDSA do to protect and nurture animals so I’m thrilled to be judging their competition this summer.’
When Abi's not writing, she volunteers for Beanstalk charity, speaks in schools and travels all across the world looking for her next story.
You can find out more about Abi on her website.
Terms and conditions
The adult sponsor of the winner and runners up will be contacted within 20 days of the closing date. If you haven't heard anything by this time, we're sorry but you haven't won this time.
Please note, prizes may take up to 28 days to arrive or arrange. Prizes are non-transferable and the judge’s decision is final. The winner will be asked to provide their height in cm when notified that they have won.
The competition is only open to children under the age of 16 and they must have an adult's permission to enter.
All entries must include the child's name, date of birth and an adult’s contact details. Any entries missing this information will not be entered into the competition. Schools can enter but each child’s story will be treated as an individual entry. Entries must be received at PDSA Head Office by midnight on 31 August 2019.
