We're giving you the chance to get your hands on FramedCosmic, and Millions!

The front covers of Framed, Cosmic, and Millions

We were thrilled to unveil Frank Cottrell-Boyce as the brand new Waterstones Children's Laureate earlier this week, taking over from Joseph Coelho - and what better way to celebrate than with a competition to win three of his brilliant books?

We're giving three lucky winners a set of classics from Frank:

  • Framed: Dylan is the only boy living in his tiny Welsh village... but one day, he spots a mysterious convoy of lorries heading for the disused mines, carrying a very precious cargo. When Dylan decides to investigate, will he get caught up in the greatest art heist in history?
  • Cosmic: When Liam wins a competition to try out the world's greatest thrill ride, he and his friends find themselves competing for the chance to be sent into space!
  • Millions: When Damian and his brother Anthony are surprised by a bag full of money falling from the sky, they start thinking about how to spend it... but with the country about to switch to Euros, making the money worthless, it turns out to be surprisingly difficult!

These super stories - all accompanied by fantastic illustrations from Stevne Lenton - are the perfect combination of exciting, funny and warm, making them ideal for young readers.

If you fancy getting your hands on them, simply answer the question below and leave your details before the closing date of 11pm on Thursday, 1 August. Good luck!
