New Mr Men and Little Miss books

Mr Funny and the Magic Lamp and Little Miss Chatterbox and the Frog Prince are the latest additions to the Magic series of books from Egmont. The boy and I Love all the Mr men and Little Miss books as I was able to pass down all my original books from when I was small. Classic stories (which are as old as me) the boy will often get these books out when he wants to fill 10 minutes of quiet reading.

Mr Funny and the Magic Lamp is a story of Mr Funny who one day finds and old trunk in the attic of his house. Inside the trunk is a magic carpet , and Mr Funny sets off on an adventure…from flying past other Mr Men and making them laugh, to reaching a desert where Mr Funny meets a genie. This story has the same Mr Men humour that we both love and we have enjoyed this book. The original Mr Funny book has always been my favourite and this book made us smile too!

Little Miss Chatterbox and the Frog Prince as you may guess is based on the classic tale, poor little miss chatterbox everyone is fed up with her constant talking. Stopping by a pond Little Miss Chatterbox comes across a frog who is only too happy to listen to her talking, but guess what this frog can talk too!

Minecraft, Beginner’s Handbook

Today sees the release of The Minecraft Beginners Handbook and to celebrate Children’s Book Week we are giving you the chance to win the boys NEW favourite book, from Egmont publishing. Aimed at children aged 9+ and priced at RRP £7.99,  ok, I know last week his favourite was the Minecraft Annual, but this week it is the Minecraft Handbook.

So why does the boy like this book so much, I think it is the love of Minecraft, and the way this beautifully laid out book gives him all the information he needs. The format is well thought and laid out, which he can easily understand. As a parent I don’t think this book is something I would have chosen, but for the amount of enjoyment the boy has had out of it, it’s been the best value for money from a book we have had in a long time.

The boy has kept going back to this book to find more information, he keeps trying to tell me about all about buildings, what turns what into what, and he especially likes the table of elements. I think the Minecraft Handbook and Annual are two of the nicest looking and feeling books, they are certainly unusual in their vintage feel with fake leather covers and gold embossing.

We give this book a HUGE 5/5 and I know the boy will have the next Minecraft handbook on his Christmas list. You can find out more about Egmont on their website, Facebook and Twitter.

Now it is your chance to own this beautiful book and see what you think. Simply fill in the rafflecopter and keep your fingers crossed!
