Giveaway #488 : Win a bundle of Minions books - closing date 10/7


Today sees the release of the long-awaited Minions movie and I have a fabulous giveaway to celebrate the occasion.

Centum Books, the UK’s leading creative children’s publisher, has obtained the rights to publishing for the Minions movie and has created a range of titles that will appeal to any young fan. The titles include the Minions Novel, Picture Book, 1000 Sticker Book, Seek and Find and Fun Book. They sent some to us and the Madhouse kids were absolutely over the moon !


The Seek & Find book (RRP £6.99) - 24 pages to test your observation skills. If you like Where's Wally, you'll love scrutinising the Minion-themed pictures. It's great fun by yourself but we also like to get competitive to see who can get there first !

Minions Story Book : Long Live King Bob (RRP £6.99) - This is a lovely quality, hardbacked reading book with beautiful glossy pages and loads of full-colour images from the film. We haven't seen the film yet so loved discovering the hilarious story of Bob becoming the King of England (especially when the royal guards all end up with yellow bearskins !)

Fun Book (£6.99) - A 96-page hardback book that is great fun for slightly older kids who can read and write because it has loads of bits to fill in with your inventions and secret plans for world domination ! There are facts, profiles and quizzes to read and you can also get more hands on with stickers.

Minions Junior Novel (£5.99) - One for older kids who are quite confident readers - a 144 page paperback novel, perfect for getting less enthusiastic readers to pick up a book during the holidays !

Minions Mega Sticker Book (RRP £7.99) - 32 pages and over 1000 stickers, sure to keep young fans of any age busy during the long summer holidays, sticking but also colouring, doodling and solving puzzles. Again, Pierre (aged 5) and Juliette (aged 10) sat down playing with this one together, so it appeals to a wide range of ages.



Centum have kindly offered to send a bundle of all five Minions books to one lucky Madhouse Family Reviews reader. Just fill in your entries in the Rafflecopter widget below :


UK only. Closing date : 10/7/15

T & C's : Entries close at midnight on the closing date. Winners will be selected with a random number generator and announced on facebook, twitter and in the giveaway post subject line. Please note, you will be contacted by email and/or twitter and if I haven't heard from you after a week, I'll have to pick another winner. Prizes will be sent out by the companies or their PR directly to winners. Madhouse Family Reviews cannot be held responsible for any prizes that go astray !
