Mystery Title ??????????

000255If you think you can guess our next book’s Mystery Title, send us your best guess along with your postal address and you may win a copy.

Our ‘Mystery Titles’ are usually pre-publication first edition titles. These are sent as book review copies to editors, buyers, and on request, some foreign rights publicity agents.

It’s great fun to unwrap an unbirthday surprise and we always send one surprise copy to the first person to guess the title of our next book.  This is an informal competition without any entry form but we do have three simple rules:

Firstly, you must not be connected in any way to the HoBB or Little People Books. This includes our helpful volunteers who would possibly see book titles in-the-making whilst here.

Secondly, you must not be employed in the book world, whether the technological ebook / app world or print one, because we openly discuss forthcoming new titles at trade fairs and events.

And thirdly, you need to love reading, be a fun individual and dance a lot.

Here are some clues for you:

Our Mystery Title has:
16 Pages of Colour Illustrations
2 Colouring Sheet pages
A password in a Little Password Book
A double page Elfland Underground Map
A few Elfland Photographs
An image of a long hat on the book spine

A CLUE AS FAR AS THE STORY GOES …

Presents are fun,
Presents must wait –
Present wrapping’s running late.
Problem solved
By all the Elves –
Presents wrapped and on the shelves.

Happy guessing – some of the tags may be a clue for you too.

Storytelling Hut design

Trad Rural Elf ArchitectureThere’s a magical showcase of traditional Elf Land Features nestling into a secret garden near you. It’s secret, so you may never find it, but the little people who built its features probably did part of their apprenticeship here at the HoBB.

We design habitats that the whole family (and elves) can enjoy. These can double-up as tool sheds, meditation dens, or as a low flying Pan once suggested, a story house for your Wendy Darling

The Elf features you can experience at the HoBB Gardens, are just about big enough for Little People, making them great places to entertain Peter Pan rather than Peter Griffin.

So when you feel the moment’s right
and there’s ‘magic in the air’,
create a secret garden place
and show an elf you care.
