“I am so thrilled that Hetty Feather has become a stage play! I’ve written exactly one hundred books but Hetty Feather is my number one top favourite!”
Jacqueline Wilson

Are you a school teacher or a school librarian? Would you like to see the hottest new West End theatre production during the summer holiday break?  We’re giving away 5 pairs of tickets to see Hetty Feather, the stage adaptation of Jacqueline Wilson’s bestselling story.

Hetty Feather follows the story of feisty Victorian foundling, Hetty Feather.  Travel on Hetty’s journey from the Foundling Hospital to the streets of London and onto the magical Tanglefields Travelling Circus.  Hetty Feather is an exciting and heartfelt adventure story.

After a hugely successful UK tour, Hetty Feather will transfer to London’s West End this summer and will be at the Vaudeville Theatre from the 5th August – 6th September.

Hetty Feather is set to become an essential story to share in schools.  We want to give school teachers and school librarians the chance to experience the magic of Hetty’s story.

Simply email RHCPEducation@randomhouse.co.uk to be in with the chance of winning a pair of tickets to the Hetty Feather stage show.   You MUST provide your name, age, email address and name of school. Or alternatively, you can enter via Facebook  

Find out more about the stage adaptation of Hetty Feather here.

There are several examples of secret Easter eggs  that I can think of:
