WIN a Children’s Chapter Book (Bitss of Caramel Marmalade on Toast) for Yourself and Your Local Library


Win two copies of Bitss of Caramel Marmalade on Toast: one for you and one for your local library of choice.

Bitss of Caramel Marmalade on Toast by Megan Bayliss is a tall tell-tale and endearingly stirring children’s read. The 109 page, paperback, children’s book sensitively addresses important protective behaviour strategies aimed at protecting children from hidden harms. The story gives children in the 8-12 year old age group an opportunity to growl against those seemingly sweet monsters that hide within our utopia waiting to change ripeness for life into a rancid, rotting mass of fly blown waste.

Value of prize A$38.00.

To enter the competition:
  1. Post a new blog about how you have taught protective behaviours or personal safety around child sexual abuse to your children (blog must be posted after today 21.3.07).
  2. Link your blog back to this competition.
  3. Leave a comment here so that Imaginif staff knows you have entered the competition, can read your entry and choose a winner.

The winning entry will be judged (by Imaginif Protective Behaviour staff) on:

  1. sensibly addressing child sexual abuse prevention,
  2. the inclusion of more than stranger danger information (85% of reported sexual abuse is perpetrated by somebody well known to the child), and,
  3. will offer an idea that other parents can use with their children.

You can only enter once and the judge’s decision is final.

Both copies of Bitss of Caramel Marmalade on Toast will be sent to the winner. The winner can then present their book donation to the local library of their choice.

The winner can also place a Dogsbody Army Award winners graphic on their blog entry and in the side bar of their site. Graphic will be emailed to winner.

Entry nominations must be received in the comments section below by 5 pm Wednesday 28th of March 2007 (Australian time, Tue 27th America). Winner will be announced Friday 30th March. Books will not be posted until Tuesday 10th April (because I will be on my honeymoon).
