Thanks to National Book Tokens and many other book publishers and sellers, World Book Day will be distributing more than 14 million £1.00 World Book Day book tokens to children all over the UK & Ireland! When you get your book token, simply take it to your local participating bookshop and swap it for one of these brand new and completely free books. Alternatively you can use your book token to get £1.00 off any full price book instead (including audio books).
Here are four of the ten free* and exclusive books for World Book Day 2016 (with matching costumes!).
