2013 World Book Day titles revealed

24th September 2012 - 5:8pm

The eight books that will be promoted as part of next year's World Book Day celebrations have been revealed.

Each year, schoolchildren across the country are given the opportunity to pick up a bestselling title at a fraction of the normal price, in order to promote literature among young people.

In 2013, the titles on offer for just £1 (and purchasable with a special World Book Day voucher) will include Francesca Simon's Horrid Henry's Guide to Perfect Parents and The Weird World of Wonders: Funny Inventions by Tony Robinson.

The other books will comprise Shirley Hughes' Alfie's Shop, Cathy Cassidy's new Chocolate Box Girls title Bittersweet and Ruby Redfort, a new mystery by Lauren Child about a code-cracking schoolgirl.

Anthony Horowitz's new Diamond Brothers book, Two of Diamonds, will also be part of the World Book Day line-up, alongside Giraffes Can't Dance: Colouring and Puzzle Fun from Giles Andreae and Guy Parker-Rees.

The list is completed by Best Book Day Ever! (so far), Liz Pichon's follow up to her 2011 Roald Dahl Funny Prize winner The Brilliant World of Tom Gates.

The special £1 tokens will be handed out in UK schools early next year, ahead of World Book Day on March 7th, when children will be able to redeem the vouchers against any of the eight titles above at participating bookshops.
