We are so excited about the arrival of the brand new edition of J.K. Rowling's The Tales of Beedle the Bard!

The fairytales straight from the world of Harry Potter (and translated from the runes by Hermione Granger, of course) have just been given a brand new makeover.

Illustrator extraordinaire and BookTrust ambassador Chris Riddell has provided the pictures for the new edition and they're just as wonderful as you would expect.

No Harry Potter fan will be able to resist picking up a copy of the book, which again gathers together 'The Tale of Three Brothers', 'The Fountain of Fair Fortune', 'The Warlock's Hairy Heart', 'The Wizard and the Hopping Pot' and 'Babbitty Rabbitty and her Cackling Stump'.

To celebrate the publication of the new edition, we're very excited to be giving five lucky winners a copy of the book and a special print - both signed by Chris himself!

To be in with a chance of winning, check out our gallery below, then scroll down to answer the question and leave your details before the closing date of 11pm on Tuesday, 30 October. Good luck!
