Win copies of our April books!

This competition is now closed.

In what’s fast becoming a monthly tradition, we’re running another of our Books Newsletter competitions and giving away copies of our upcoming April titles. If you’re a resident of the UK or Ireland you can win any of next month’s releases simply by subscribing to our Books Newsletter and either tweeting to @NosyCrowBooks or leaving a comment underneath this blogpost, telling us the name you subscribed with and the book you’d like to win. And without further ado, here are the glorious books up for grabs…

We’re publishing the first two books in the brand new Tiny Tabs series, illustrated by Jannie HoTeeny Weeny Looks for his Mummy! and Bunny Boo has lost her Teddy! Designed for the smallest of hands, these robust, colourful books will delight baby readers again and again. With simple stories, repeated refrains and a host of faces to spot and name, they are the perfect books to engage and entertain the very young.

It’s publication time for Weasels, the HILARIOUS picture book debut by Elys Dolan. It’s almost impossible to put into words how original and witty this book is: imagine spoof James Bond meets Scaredy Squirrel if you can. It’s packed with cross-over humour that’s guaranteed to amuse the very young and the not-so-young in equal measure, and the art is stylish yet accessible, and full of details for poring over time and time again – there’s always a new joke to find! We posted the Weasels Workplace Survival Guide earlier this month, and you can take a look inside the book below:

We’re releasing Troll Swap by Leigh Hodgkinson, author-illustrator extraordinaire and creator of the Greenaway-longlisted Goldilocks and Just the One Bear. Another fantastic picture book that cleverly plays with fairy tale conventions, Troll Swap tells the story of Timothy Limpet (a troll) and Tabitha Lumpet (a little girl) who both feel a bit out of place in their own families… so they decide to swap! Here’s a look inside:

The paperback edition of Guinea Pig Party by Holly Surplice is also out next month – a charming picture book featuring the world’s cutest guinea pigs. Based on a familiar childhood counting rhyme and combining birthday fun, counting and cute fluffy animals, this is the perfect birthday gift for pre-school children everywhere. Here’s a look inside:

And finally, it’s publication time for the third book in the brilliant Magical Mix-Ups series by Marnie Edwards and Leigh Hodgkinson – a fantastic combination of fiction and doodle book, with a real story, great characters, and lots of drawing involved. This volume, Magical Mix-Ups: Pets and Parties, is publishing in an EXTRA-large format – you can find more details here, or read the first chapter below:

You can subscribe to the books newsletter here (if you’ve already subscribed you’re still eligible for this competition) – and every month we’ll write to you with details of our upcoming titles, author events, exclusive interviews, and all of our news. So have a good think about which book you’d like to win (we can only accept one entry per person), and good luck – we’ll pick the winners at random next week.
