Regular readers of my blog will know that I’m passionate about children’s books in translation, and so today I’m especially glad to have the opportunity to give one lucky reader copies of 2 translated books I believe are exceptional: I have a worldwide giveaway of The Cat who Came in off the Roof by Annie M. G. Schmidt, translated by David Colmer and The Letter for the King by Tonke Dragt, translated by Laura Watkinson.
These are two of my family’s very favourite books: they’re so good we’ve read them multiple times in both their original Dutch, and in translation!
I summarised what I think of both books yesterday in this post – but basically, these are outstanding books in any language, and both have received rave reviews here in the UK, as well as back home in the Netherlands.
The nitty gritty
(1) Tweet about this giveaway, perhaps using this text:
Win 2 exceptional children’s novels great for sharing as a family over on @playbythebook’s blog http://www.playingbythebook.net/?p=30158
(2) Share this giveaway on your Facebook page or blog
You must leave a separate comment for each entry for them to count.
Best of luck and happy reading!
UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed. It was won by entry 63, Sanja Stajdohar.
