We've teamed up with our friends at Canongate Books to give young adventurers the chance to win a fabulous escapist read alongside a stunning watch. One winner will receive a signed copy of Patience Agbabi's The Infinite and Swatch Flik Flak watch of their choice. 10 runners-up will each receive a signed copy of The Infinite.
Philip Pullman described Patience Agbabi's The Infinite as 'vivid, funny, exciting and inventive' and it is her first mind-bending, time-twisting novel for children (aged 8-12).
The Infinite follows the story of Elle Bíbi-Imbelé Ifíè, a leapling with The Gift – the ability to leap through time. She’s never used The Gift. Until now.
On her twelfth birthday, Elle and her best friend Big Ben travel to the Time Squad Centre in 2048. Elle has received a mysterious warning from the future. Other Leaplings are disappearing in time – and not everyone at the centre can be trusted.
Soon Elle’s adventure becomes more than a race through time. It’s a race against time. She must fight to save the world as she knows it – before it ceases to exist...Flik Flak is the world's favourite children's watch. Swiss made, they help kids to learn to tell the time with a fun and entertaining concept. Shock-resistant, water-resistant and machine-washable up to 40°, it's the essential adventuring companion!
