It's day two of our Big Christmas Giveaway and we're giving you the chance to win a bundle of Faber Children’s books worth over £100 – the perfect gifts for grandchildren this Christmas. One runner-up will also win a Faber Children's Christmas bundle worth over £50. Hurry – you only have one day to enter!

Faber has published children’s books since 1929. T. S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats and Ted Hughes’ The Iron Man were amongst the first. Their catalogue at the time said that "it is by reading such books that children learn the difference between the shoddy and the genuine". They still believe in the power of reading to transform children’s lives. All their books are chosen with the express intention of growing a love of reading, a thirst for knowledge and to cultivate empathy. Faber believe in kind and inclusive books in which all children feel represented and important.

The first prize bundle includes:

  • Rescue: Astonishing real-life rescue missions from on, under and above the earth from the award-winning team behind Survivors and Heroes, author David Long and illustrator Kerry Hyndman.
