National Book Tokens Launches Literary Brain Teaser for Children

National Book Tokens’ has announced the launch of the Book Island Challenge for children as part of their 2019 Christmas campaign.

Introduced in 2018, the Book Island Challenge offers fifty eagle-eyed young book lovers the chance to win £10/€10 National Book Tokens if they can spot all the children’s book characters hidden in a cryptic image.

Returning for a second year, young book lovers are encouraged to identify children’s book characters from the clues given in a colourful ‘treasure map’. This year’s map design has been illustrated by designer Sofia Hericson, who has previously worked with Foyle’s bookshops.

The fifty winners able to identify all the characters hidden in the map will be awarded £10/€10 National Book Tokens.

The Book Island Challenge is part of the National Book Tokens’ annual Christmas campaign. The children’s game coincides with the launch of the Hidden Book Game, a cryptic version of the challenge for adults, which is now in its seventh year. This year’s Hidden Book Game is designed by illustrator Harry Woodgate, who was recently shortlisted in the V&A Illustration Awards 2019.

The National Book Tokens’ Christmas campaign, including the Book Island Challenge and Hidden Book Game, is based around the idea that ‘choosing a book is an adventure in itself’. Young bookworms hoping to win a National Book Token can play the Book Island Challenge online at nationalbooktokens.com/bookisland. Entries for the ec30bb7f03dce185af8d1f1f7c9482e0.jpgBook Island Challenge will close on 31st December 2019.

National Book Tokens have been inspiring booklovers since 1932, working to encourage a lifelong love of reading among children everywhere. Accepted in thousands of bookshops, National Book Tokens gift cards are the perfect way to reward and inspire.
