Book giveaway: Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz

Stormbreaker2015 marks the 15th anniversary of the Alex Rider series, a firm favourite among children worldwide. 

Exploding bubble gum, exotic locations and villains Ian Fleming would be proud of - it's no surprise the Alex Rider series has had children (and adults) hooked for 15 years. 

To date the ten Alex Rider novels have sold over 16 million copies in English and have been published in 28 different languages. 

If for some reason you haven't encountered the adventures of this reluctant boy spy just yet, Walker Books are releasing new editions of all ten books, to introduce this action-packed series to a whole new generation.

To celebrate we're inviting Alex Rider fans to send in their questions for author Anthony Horowitz. In early April we're going to put our favourite ten questions to Anthony on a filmed Q&A which we'll upload to our youtube channel and to the discussion thread. If your question is one of ten to be answered, you will win a SIGNED copy of Stormbreaker.

Praise for the Alex Rider series

"The perfect hero… genuine 21st century stuff." Daily Telegraph

"Every bored schoolboy's fantasy, only a thousand times funnier, slicker and more exciting." The Independent
