It’s almost time to celebrate World Book Day and you might be wondering which books you can get your hands on for £1.

The £1 book tokens given out ahead of the big day allow children to choose one book which they can redeem for their token so all children can do some reading for free.

They’ll get to keep the book so it’s worth knowing which ones are up for grabs this year before making the decision of which to get.

The books were made available for free from February 15 and will last up until March 31.

When is World Book Day?

World Book Day is taking place in a couple of weeks time – on Thursday, March 7.
