World Book Day Roald Dahl 15 Book Collection Giveaway with www.Cottages.com

To help celebrate World Book Day on Thursday 3rd March, the kind folk at the holiday letting agency www.Cottages.com are offering my readers the chance to win a fantastic collection of 15 Roald Dahl books to keep your young fiction fans busy for a while.

World Book Day Roald Dahl Complete Book Collection Giveaway with www.Cottages.com

www.cottages.com has more than 15,000 properties across the UK, and to help you choose your next holiday destination, they have put together a map of places to visit connected with some of our favourite children’s authors and stories.


Map of literary children's locations in the UK

To find out more about the locations which inspired these children's favourites, or where to go to find themed activities and days out, take a look at my previous post - A Tour Of Storytelling Britain With Cottages.com.

The Roald Dahl Museum And Story Centre can be found down in Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire, where you can even see his original and infamous 'Writing Hut', the garden shed in which he wrote his children's stories for over 30 years.

Collection of 15 Roald Dahl books

The Roald Dahl book collection is a fantastic set of 15 of the best and most well-loved children's classics, including The Twits, The BFG, Esio Trot, Danny The Champion Of The World, Charlie & The Chocolate Factory, The Witches, Fantastic Mr Fox, George's Marvellous Medicine and my personal favourite - Matilda.

All of our children have loved listening to Roald Dahl books, and reading them independently as they became confident enough for chapter books. Funny and thought-provoking, they stand the test of time and are as popular today as they were when he published his first children's book in 1943.

For your chance to win this gorgeous collection of Roald Dahl books perfect for young readers aged around 6-12, please enter using the Gleam form below. There are no mandatory questions but every task completed earns extra entries into the giveaway. UK entries only please, the giveaway will end at midnight 27th March.
