Next month we’re publishing a truly wonderful book for 9+ year olds: The Farm Beneath the Water by Helen Peters, the sequel to the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize-shortlisted The Secret Hen House Theatre.

And today, you can win a highly sought-after proof copy of the book! All you need to do is follow @NosyCrowBooks on Twitter and re-tweet this message to enter a competition to win one of three proofs – and we’ll let winners know at the end of the day!

The Farm Beneath the Water has all the same hallmarks as its predecessor: great writing and an emotionally engaging, entertaining narrative. It’s PERFECT for 9-12 year olds who love a brilliantly-told story.

But don’t just take our word for it! Here are some of the EXTRAORDINARY reviews that Helen’s first book received:

“There is something timeless about Helen Peters’s accomplished and hugely engaging debut novel … Drawn with humour and affection, Hannah’s world is utterly convincing.” — The Guardian

“Full of action, with a happy ending, this is a book I didn’t want to finish.” — Michael Morpurgo

“As a child I loved The Swish of the Curtain, and The Secret Hen House Theatre is another engaging book about threatened amateur dramatics.” — Julia Donaldson

“A hugely enjoyable story of family, friendship and country life” — Booktrust

“One of my favourite summer reads: a contemporary adventure with secrets, wonderful characters and lots of heart. Dreamy girls will love the drama-competition plot, with nostalgic echoes of The Swish of the Curtain” — The Bookseller
