In an effort to continue to engage Ickabog fans, Rowling is inviting children to help her illustrate the book. With the release of each chapter, Rowling will be making suggestions of what children might want to draw to illustrate the story as it progresses. If you are between the ages of 7-12, you can submit those drawings to the official competition for a chance to be featured in The Ickabog book, slated to be published in November. All ages are encouraged to post their pictures on social media using the hashtag #TheIckabog to potentially be recognized by Rowling herself.
Superb work, Phoebe, not just the illustration but the imagination that went into it! #TheIckabog https://t.co/NOJXqCIbz8— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) May 28, 2020

Rowling intends to donate all royalties from the published versions of The Ickabog to organizations working with those most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Full details of these donations are slated to be made available later this year.
