Win copies of our September books!

It’s time for our monthly book giveaway – and this is no ordinary month! September is our biggest time of the year for the new books, and we have some TRULY extraordinary titles coming out. 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. Here’s what you could win…

We’re publishing the phenomenal Playbook Pirates, the follow-up to the equally ingenious Playbook Farm, with paper-engineering by Corina Fletcher and illustrations by Britta Teckentrup. Combining a pop-up storybook with a fold-out 3D playmat (complete with separate cut-out cardboard pieces), Playbook Pirates is perfect portable fun for journeys, playdates and bedtime too – and it makes an incredible gift! Here’s a video trailer for the book:

We’re publishing Axel Scheffler’s Flip Flap Farm, which we previewed here on the blog yesterday – an hilarious rhyming flip-flap book in a brilliant, innovative split-page spiral-bound format, with wonderful illustrations by Axel Scheffler and 121 possible combinations. Here’s a preview:

It’s publication month for Spells-a-Popping, Granny’s Shopping by Tracey Corderoy and Joe Berger – the third fantastic picture book in the series began by Hubble Bubble, Granny Trouble, featuring a little girl and her granny, who may just be – whisper it – a witch. Here’s a look inside the book:

The sixth Pip and Posy picture book by Axel Scheffler will be out next month – Pip and Posy: The Bedtime Frog. When Posy goes to stay at Pip’s house they have lots of fun together before bedtime. But just as they switch out the light, disaster strikes: Posy realises that she has forgotten her favourite frog toy. Can Pip save the day and comfort his friend in her hour of need? You’ll have to read the book to find out! Here’s how it begins:

If that’s not enough from Pip and Posy, we’re also publishing the paperback edition of Pip and Posy: The Scary Monster, which comes enabled with our innovative Stories Aloud audio feature. This time around, Pip comes to Posy’s house wearing a scary monster mask, and he gives Posy a bit of a fright – but when she works out it’s only Pip, she feels much better, and they share the biscuits she’s made. Hooray! Here’s a look inside:

And for slightly older readers, we’re also publishing two great fiction titles in September. It’s publication month for My Brilliant Life and other Disasters by Catherine Wilkins, the HILARIOUS sequel to last year’s (equally hysterical) debut, My Best Friend and other Enemies. Jessica is back, and everything in her life seems to be going swimmingly – she’s got her best friend, she’s about to launch her comic, and her nutty Aunt has come to stay. The only ink blot on the landscape is Scarlett, Amelia’s super-cool, super-annoying cousin… who just happens to draw cartoons too. Soon Jessica is fighting for her cartoonist life. It’s a good job she has an enormous badger on her side… Here’s the first chapter:

And finally, we’re publishing The Rescue Princesses: The Silver Locket – the latest volume in Paula Harrison’s excellent Rescue Princesses series, perfect for newly independent readers. Rosalind and the other princesses are in the Kingdom of Taldonia for the Autumn Ball. They love playing with a little puppy called Patch, but they can’t stop arguing, and Rosalind decides it’s easier to be friends with animals than with silly princesses. She goes off on her own, and that’s when disaster strikes! Here’s how the story starts:
