Year 5 girl Ruby Heffernan certainly impressed the judges when she won the Bloomsbury Publishing Fuzzy Mud Short Story competition ahead of the launch of author Louis Sachar’s new book.
Using the title A little mud never hurt anyone, did it? Ruby crafted a terrific short story. She has not only won $200 worth of Bloomsbury books for herself; she has won a further $200 worth of books for the Junior Years library.
Ruby can look forward to a very special delivery in time for some Christmas reading.
A copy of Ruby's story is below.
