Giveaway #205 : Win Who's Horrible in History? with The Works - closed - winner @him_me_three



I'm really excited to be running this competition, not just because the book looks great fun for kids (as well as educational) but because I've also learnt that The Works has an online store. I absolutely love The Works. There isn't one in Hastings but whenever we're in Eastbourne, Brighton or Canterbury, I always make sure I go there and I never come out empty-handed. They have fabulous prices for books, but also activity packs, crafts materials and DVDs, so I'll definitely be going to check out what they have on offer online.

But on to the prize. We all love the Horrible Histories series of books and TV programmes here at The Madhouse, and Who's Horrible in History? looks like it's kept the winning formula. The blurb says : "Terry Deary names and shames fifty of history's most merciless miscreants and purveyors of the pernicious in this laugh-out-loud, full colour Who's Who like no other. Stories, newspaper articles, diary entries and fact files reveal just who put the horrible in history, from rotten rebels to wicked women." 

You can pick the book up at The Works online store for £8.49 (this is a web exclusive so you won't find it in store) but I also have a copy of the book to give away to one Madhouse Family Reviews reader.

To be in with a chance of winning , just do the following :

- Comment on one of my blogposts (other giveaways don't count !)

- Leave me a comment in the comments box with a way of contacting you (twitter name or email) and tell me which of my blogposts you commented on.
