Win this amazing autumn book bundle from Walker Books

Walker Books are kindly giving one lucky reader a selection of the following fantastic books PLUS a Madame Badobedah print. 

Madame Badobedah by Sophie Dahl, illustrated by Lauren O'Hara

Mabel lives with her parents in The Mermaid Hotel, by the sea. Mabel likes to keep an eye on the comings and goings of all the guests. Then one day a particularly in-ter-est-ing old lady comes to stay. There is something very suspicious about her, with her growly voice and her heavy trunks and her beady-eyed tortoise. And why does no one know her REAL name? There can only be one answer, Mabel decides ... this guest is a SUPERVILLAIN.

But even supervillains have a soft side, and as an unlikely friendship grows between the pair, their fantastical exploits take them well beyond the corridors of their seaside home.

 

Pick a Pumpkin by Patricia Toht, illustrated by Jarvis

It’s Halloween! Which means it's time to dangle cobwebs and bats from the windows, put on costumes, and – most important of all – visit the pumpkin patch and pick out that perfect pumpkin! Then cart it home, scoop out the insides, carve a scary face, and finally light a candle inside, transforming it into a one-of-a-kind, glowing jack-o’-lantern...

With warm, autumnal art, and a rhythmic read-aloud text that captures all the excitement and familial feeling of Halloween, this is the perfect book to share by flickering candlelight on the spookiest night of the year.

 

A Child of Books by Sam Winston and Oliver Jeffers

In this inspiring, lyrical tale about the rewards of reading and sharing stories, a little girl sails her raft "across a sea of words" to arrive at the house of a small boy. There she invites him to come away with her on an adventure. Through forests of fairy tales and across mountains of make-believe, the two travel together on a fantastical journey that unlocks the boy’s imagination. Now a lifetime of magic lies ahead of him… But who will be next?

Combining elegant illustrations by Oliver Jeffers and Sam Winston’s astonishing typographical landscapes shaped from excerpts of children’s classics and lullabies, A Child of Books is a gorgeous gift book perfect for readers of all ages, and a must-have Christmas gift.
