From fun-packed stories starring famous children’s characters to historical fiction for adults, the books in these bundles will provide endless entertainment. Even better is the fact you can either give one set to a loved one for a big Christmas present or share the books out among friends and lower the cost of your Christmas shopping in style!
Poirot is set to return in 2014 with a brand new mystery written by Sophie Hannah, so what better time to read up on the Belgian detective’s previous cases? Our 12-book Agatha Christie Collection is available for just £15 and will have any fan hooked throughout, while also keeping up the festive cheer with the famous book The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding. The White Queen was one of the big television successes this year and Christmas could be the perfect opportunity to read up on Philippa Gregory’s page-turning historical fiction that inspired the hit adaptation.
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will soon be at a cinema screen near you and we have the perfect gift for anyone who’d prefer to be on Middle-earth over the next few weeks. The gorgeous Lord of the Rings trilogy and Hobbit box set will help you rediscover J.R.R. Tolkien’s magical adventure that change literature forever. For those who prefer space to fantasy lands, we also have a special treat that not only explains the meaning of life, but also just why you should always have a towel on you. The 8-book Douglas Adams Collection contains the entire Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy trilogy of five and three further books that also provide an insight into a unique and much-missed comic mind. Our hand-picked Winter Warmers Collection will also provide perfect books to delve into while curling up on the sofa in these cold winter months. Including the highly acclaimed Room and The Lovely Bones author Alice Sebold’s The Almost Moon, this is contemporary fiction at its finest.
We have plenty of collections that will bring a smile to any child’s face this Christmas time too. Although not books, The David Walliams CD Set will surely delight children over the Christmas holidays, especially with the adaptation of Gangsta Granny coming to a television screen too. Read by Walliams himself, with a little help from Matt Lucas, the collection features five of his bestsellers and is perfect for keeping the whole family entertained on any long journeys over the Christmas break. Another author with a gift for heart-warming and zany tales is Dr. Seuss and our Collection in a Bag features 12 classic picture books full of rhyming text and wacky illustrations. And what would Christmas be without the Grinch?
For little ones, Julia Donaldson is one of the most popular authors around and our collection of her titles features favourite titles like The Gruffalo’s Child and Room on the Broom and will provide some bedtime favourites for the whole of 2014. Our Monsters and Aliens Collection will also make a wonderful addition to any child over 3’s bookshelf. Bold, bright and crazy, among the books are the hilarious Monstersaurus, Aliens Love Underpants and the extremely cute No-Bot, the Robot with No Bottom!
