A huge Jacqueline Wilson fan, Melissa loves reading the official Jacqueline Wilson magazine each month. After seeing other readers submit their pictures, Melissa thought she would have a go herself and just before Christmas she wrote into the magazine with her illustration of Clover Moon, a character in one of the author’s latest stories.

Each month she has been opening the magazine to see if she has made it into print, not an easy task with the high volume of mail they receive from all their readers, but this month, lo and behold, right at the top of the letter’s page Melissa found her picture! She received some felt-tips as a prize and high praise for her excellent drawing.

A great achievement Melissa, well done.
