If you're aged 12 or under and want to win some marvellous prizes, enter the bedtime story competition and show your support for Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity.

We've teamed up with our marvellous friends Chipmunks Footwear, who are proudly supporting Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity, to offer children ages 12 and under, the chance to enter a bedtime story competition. 

Chipmunks Footwear is supporting the charity so that Roald Dahl specialist children's nurses  can provide expert care and support for seriously ill children in the UK.

What's it all about?

We're on the hunt for the UK's next superstar storyteller and entrants are asked to use their imaginations to create a story based on Marvin the Marvellous Crocodile, the mascot from Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity and one of the Chipmunks character adventure partners such as Tommy the Tiger or Una the Unicorn. Children can decide what wonderful adventure Marvin the Marvellous Crocodile goes on, where will the amazing adventure take him and his Chipmunks character adventure partner?

How to enter

Get creative and write your marvellous story. Your story has to be at least 250 words and you can even add some drawings to make your story come to life. Submit your story to by midnight on Friday 22nd December. The winner will be chosen by a panel of independent judges from Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity. 

What are the prizes?

  • Your story published in your own book
  • A £100 Chipmunks voucher to spend on shoes of your choice
  • A Golden Ticket providing free family entry to the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre
