An eight-year-old from Cambridgeshire has won herself a spot on the cover of an iconic book.
Rahma Alsad, from Stretham, entered the Guinness World Records 2022 competition after seeing that participants had the chance to be drawn into next year’s cover.
An award-winning artist will draw a picture of Rahma climbing the world’s largest sandcastle, which will be featured as part of the front cover.
Rahma is one of only three winners chosen from around the world.
She said: “I found out I was a winner in May (2021) when my mum shared the news with me.”
“I am proud and delighted to win and had so much fun participating.
“I’m happy knowing I will be on my favourite book cover throughout the UK.”
