Waterstons are offering the first book from five series for £1, with free delivery.
This deal was actually posted on HUKD a few weeks ago (thanks verlaque76), but was reposted today, which is where I saw it for the first time.
The idea behind this offer, I guess is to get children hooked on a new series, which is great, really! I loved all the mystery books as a child – The Hardy Boys, Famous Five and Nancy Drew – and would live myself into the series. It was wonderful!
The books on offer here are:
- Horrid Henry, who tries to be perfect for one day; he learns to dance, quarrels with his arch-enemy Moody Margaret and goes on holiday.
- Hiccup: How to Train Your Dragon, which is apparently a must read before seeing the film, and is the first in Hiccup's How to Train Your Dragon memoirs.
- Skulduggery Pleasant is for the slightly older 9- 12 year old readers, as is…
- … the series on the most ingenious criminal mastermind in history, Artemis Fowl.
- Lord Loss is the first in the Demonta series for teens, and reading the synopsis, I kind of long for the innocent days of the Famous Five! I’m not into fictional demons and darkness, but the reviewers give it pretty high ratings.
