Congratulations Shruthi Rao, this year's Crocusword winner! We'll be in touch via email.

We loved your seven year old's Time Travel piece, which we are happy to share here:

"If I could go back in time, I would have liked to be a mammoth because woolly mammoths were very furry and must have been so nice to feel. I like snow and I could live in the snow and I would not feel cold because I would have a woolly coat. I feel sad for them because they are extinct. Do you know what I am going to do when I grow up? I am going to be a mammoth researcher and try to get mammoths back to life."
