GIVEAWAY: Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell pack

GIVEAWAY: Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell pack

**Giveaway posted 10th November, enter by 16th November 2016.**

Neil Gaiman is a masterful storyteller, and together with illustrator Chris Riddell, they’ve created two beautiful, magical books: and one lucky reader can win a pack containing them both!

The Sleeper and the Spindle is a fairytale, with a twist. The story has been inspired a little by Snow White, a bit by Sleeping Beauty, and stars a tough and independent young queen who needs to rescue a princess. The illustrations are amazing, and this deluxe edition just sparkles.

Odd & The Frost Giants is a magical adventure story about a special young hero, told with humour and matched with stunning illustrations. It’s “a thrilling, wintry Nordic epic… weaving a tale of legend, magic and adventure which will grip and enchant readers from beginning to end.”

We think these books will enthral young lovers of fantasy, ages 9+.

We have one prize to giveaway, containing a copy of both Odd and the Frost Giants and the deluxe edition of The Sleeper and the Spindle. To be in the running for this wonderful prize, post a comment on the GIVEAWAY story which will be on our facebook page from 7.30pm 10th November, telling us which fairytale is your favourite, and why. The most interesting and original response by 5pm 16th November will win the prize, thanks to our friends at Bloomsbury Publishing.

Please note the competition is open to Australian residents only. The winner will be announced on our facebook page.
