Competition Winners: Turtle's New Shell!

To select the winning entries of the Turtle's New Shell competition, Turtle has chosen a special guest judge. Well, actually, two special guest judges.
They are a debonair pair, both of whom Turtle is strongly considering inviting out for some tea and cake.
Oh, and one of them has a 'special fin'.


That's right, it's Waldo the Worm and Dave aka The Nosuch Disco.
Oh yes. It's true.

Well then, Turtle thinks it's best if they do the rest of the talking whilst he sits down for a nice relaxing brew.

Hello there!!

First off, thank you so much for choosing Waldo and I to judge the Turtle's New Shell competition, its a real honour. 

We have been deliberating for a few days now on what the finalists are, we even got into a bit of a fight about it! but its all ok now, i think. 

So to business! 

3rd Place:

Sixes and Sevens: Zebra's Rule

Nosuch Disco: I once went out with a girl that had a coat like this...

Waldo: Was she nice?

Nosuch Disco: Not really, but the coat was worth the year long relationship. 

Waldo: I like the expression on turtles face, its like "what the...?"

Nosuch Disco: Yeah, its like he's been graffitied in his sleep and just woke up all confused and what not.

2nd Place:

Ella's Shell

ND: WOW look at all the little characters on this shell, i could certainly steal one for your next adventure! 

W: now that you've said that, if there is say a ladybird in the next book, its going to look like you've nicked it from here! 

ND: good point! what i like best here is the amount of stuff thats going on, like the watering can and the evil looking dandelion 

W: is he saying snap? 

ND: its cool how turtles face is half and half! 


Maddy (all done with a pencil)

ND: look at the detail here, i like how i've been looking at it for hours and still spotting new stuff about it! 

W: i like how it now looks like a big head with a worm popping out the ear! 

ND: ahaha yes!! I also like how the feet are like bucked teeth! 

W: its perfect for scaring off predators! Predators as in things that eat turtles, nor Predators in the film, i dont think they'd be scared of a face on a turtle. 

ND: whats the 007 thing about? 

W: No idea! i'm less than a year old

ND: still that aside, its an awesome drawing, well done Maddy!!

Congratulations everybody!
Turtle will be in touch soon so that he can post out your goodies!
