Win all six books in the Ruby Redfort series by Lauren Child

Older children will adore this lively spy adventure, starring the code-cracking 13-year-old Ruby.

If you have a child aged nine plus who hasn't yet read the Ruby Redfort books, you'd better enter this competition, quickly! 

The six Ruby Redfort books are written by the Waterstones Children's Laureate Laureate Child, and they are full of her characteristic humour and quirky scenarios.
