Judith Kerr's classic book When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit was published 50 years ago - and to mark the occasion, a beautiful new hardback anniversary edition has been released.

Now, we're giving you the chance to win a copy of Kerr's semi-autobiographical story, which follows a Jewish family as they flee Germany in the days before the Second World War.

Anna is a typical child more interested in her toboggan and schoolwork than all the talk of Hitler - but one day, she and her brother Max are rushed out of Germany in secret as their father is wanted by the Nazis.

Described by Sir Michael Morpurgo as 'the most life-enhancing book you could ever wish to read', When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit takes readers on the family's adventure - with moments both frightening and funny.

It's a stunning introduction for children to the real-life impacts of the Second World War - and continues to feel relevant today.

We have three copies of the new anniversary edition to give away, so if you'd like to be in with a chance of winning, simply answer the question below and leave your details before the closing date of 11pm on Thursday, 28 October.
