HERE’S A little competition to celebrate the publication of Sebastian Meschenmoser’s delightful antidote to fairy stories, 3 wishes for Pugman.

Pugman is a rather grumpy pug dog whose day doesn’t start too well. But when a rather over-bubbly fairy tries to cheer him up with three wishes, he gives her quite a surprise.

To win one of three copies of this hilarious hardback picture book plus a limited edition A3 poster (pictured), all you have to do is post your own three wishes below in a comment to this post or email them to

Your wishes can be as corny or as quirky, serious or humorous as you like. Everyone who posts or emails will go into the draw and on 1 December we’ll choose the three we like best to receive the prizes.

Happy wishing!
