In case you can't read my scrawl (and it's very likely you can't), I'll transcribe, awkward punctuation and all:
Friday 26 [of August, I'm guessing] 1988
I went in a poster comp. I won first prize in the infants section. I got a $5 voucher to buy from the book fair. I chose a Drawing Book and The Frog Prince. The Frog Prince is an excellent book that shows you the true fact's that if you make your promise you must keep it. The Drawing Book is a book w[h]ich shows you how to draw hard things simply.
The entries seem very childish, looking back on them, but I think this little journal is likely where my love of writing really took off.Remember Puffy Stickers? Weren't they the best?
