It’s time for our monthly book giveaway! Our new May titles will be published soon, and if you’re a resident of the UK or Ireland, you can win any of them simply by subscribing to our Books Newsletter and sending us an email with the book you’d like to win! Here’s what’s out next month – and what’s up for grabs:

You could win Superhero Dad by Timothy Knapman and Joe Berger – a vibrant, humorous and warmhearted picture book celebration of all the incredible things a dad can do. Dad might not have a superhero mask or wear his pants outside his trousers, but his super snores can be heard a thousand miles away, he tells super jokes and can even make super-scary monsters go away at bedtime! Here’s a look inside the book:

We’ll be publishing The Big Monster Snoreybook, written and illustrated by Leigh Hodgkinson – a hugely hilarious, inventive new picture book from the creator of Goldilocks and Just the One Bear and the Roald Dahl Funny Prize-shortlisted Troll Swap. With masses of monsters to spot and an awesome onomatopoeic text, this is a book that will be enjoyed over and over again. Here’s a recent blog post from Leigh on where she works – and here’s a look inside the book:

Get Out Of My Bath by Britta Teckentrup, illustrator of the brilliant and innovative Playbook series, will be out next month – a BEAUTIFULLY-designed, interactive picture book for 2+ year olds, in which readers are encouraged to get involved in the story by tilting and shaking the book. And it has a very special tactile quality, too – spot UV on every spread creates a wonderful, glistening-water effect that you won’t be able to stop yourself touching.

You could win Hubble Bubble: The Messy Monkey Business, written by Tracey Corderoy and illustrated by Joe Berger – three more stories of magical mayhem from the creators of the BRILLIANT Hubble Bubble picture book and illustrated fiction series. This time around, Granny gets the monkeys to paint the zoo, takes a wand-wielding toddler to a department store and builds the raft to end all rafts! Thank goodness Pandora’s there to sort things out… Here’s a look inside the book:

The paperback edition of The Grunts in a Jam by Philip Ardagh and Axel Scheffler will be out next month. The third book in the superlatively silly Grunts series sees the gloriously grubby Grunt family head to a country fair so Mrs Grunt’s mother can enter her homemade jam in the Preserves, Jams and Jellies Competition. There’s nothing in that plan to suggest they’ll encounter sabotage, bad poetry and prison, is there? Hmm. This is The Grunts we’re talking about… Here’s a look inside:

And you finally, you could win The Secret Rescuers: The Storm Dragon, the first book in a brilliant new series written by Paula Harrison and illustrated by Sophy Williams. Set in a fantasy world populated by dragons, unicorns, storm wolves and firebirds, this superbly-realised series for 7+ year olds by the author of The Rescue Princesses is packed with magical adventures and baby creatures in peril.
