Giveaway: Noah Barleywater Runs Away - John Boyne NOW CLOSED

*UPDATE - THIS GIVEAWAY HAS NOW ENDED - Winner announced here*

Noah Barleywater left home in the early morning, before the sun rose, before the dogs woke, before the dew stopped falling on the fields.

Eight-year-old Noah's problems seem easier to deal with if he doesn't think about them. So he runs away, taking an untrodden path through the forest.

Before long he comes across a shop; it's a toyshop, full of the most amazing toys, and brimming with the most wonderful magic. And here Noah meets a very unusual old man.

The old man takes Noah on a journey. A journey that will change his life. And it could change yours too.

Noah Barleywater Runs Away releases in the UK on September 30th 2010 in hardback.

Visit John Boyne's website for more information

I'd like to say a massive thank you to publisher Random House Children's Books for offering 3 copies of the illustrated hardback of Noah Barleywater Runs Away by John Boyne to giveaway to my UK readers.  I really enjoyed this book - you can read my review here - and am really excited to be able to help share the book with this giveaway.

I want to share this story with my international readers too so I'm going to send the ARC I received for review to 1 international winner.  Unfortunately the ARC isn't illustrated but I'm sure you will still enjoy this wonderful story.
Giveaway Details:
  • RHCB have offered 3 finished hardback copies of this book for my UK readers, I will also give my ARC copy to 1 international reader.
  • You don't have to be a follower to enter (although of course I'd love it if you were LOL)
  • You can get extra entries by spreading the word but that isn't required
  • You can also get extra entries by commenting on my review of Noah Barleywater Runs Away here (again this is not required)
  • To enter please fill in the form below
  • You have until 14th October to enter the giveaway and I'll announce the 4 winners on my blog soon afterwards.  If you are a lucky winner you will have 48 hours to contact me with their addresses or I will have to chose a different winner.
  • The books will be sent to the UK winners directly by RHCB so if you win you agree for me to pass your address to them so they can send out your prize, I will be sending the prize to the international winner myself.
