To celebrate the release of A Monster Calls in cinemas this month, we’re giving away 10 prize packs, each containing an Admit 2 movie ticket and a copy of the book by Patrick Ness.
Voiced by Liam Neeson, the monster in A Monster Calls is a giant yew tree that has sprung to life from the graveyard behind 12-year-old Conor’s house. For your chance to win, tell us in 25 words or less, what would the monster in your story look like?
