CAPE TOWN - Award winning author Lauren Beukes is calling on kids to help illustrate her upcoming children's book.

Beukes has come up with 20 creatures which will feature in the Bostik book of _Unbelievable Beasties. _



The only thing missing are the illustrations of these beasties and Beukes is leaving it up to children between the ages of six and 12 to draw them.

"I decided to make my life difficult and write them in rhyme and I wrote descriptions for 20 different critters that we want kids to be able to draw and glue, to create their own beasties based on the description."
