ONE little girl will be eating jelly babies for weeks after winning a bumper jar in a local competition.
Sweet toothed Laurie Wells of Linlithgow Primary correctly guessed the number of jelly babies in the jar in a Little Owls Bookshop contest, coinciding with the launch of new book, ‘You, Me and Thing’ by Karen McCombie.
Manager Jill Pattle said: “It’s a lovely story and part one in a series. A little girl finds a ‘thing’ at the bottom of the garden and with the boy next door they have adventures together, finding out that the ‘thing’ likes jelly babies more than anything else.
“Children aged six to eight years would love it.”
‘You, Me and Thing’ is on sale at Little Owls Bookshop, 103 High Street, Linlithgow.
