Boy, was I excited when I opened the mail this morning. The good folks at Walker Books Australia knew how much I raved about Snakehead, the seventh Alex Rider novel. So they have sent me a deluxe tin canister edition of the first six Alex Rider novels. So, what to do? Keep it, or find a new home?
I am a huge fan of the author Anthony Horowitz, too. Why? A couple of years ago Anthony was in Australia researching Snakehead when he stopped in to run a free workshop. He was fantastic. Generous, hard working and great to meet.
This box set would make a good Christmas present, wouldn’t it? The question is, for whom?
Okay, it would be selfish of me to horde it. I give in. To make this slick little box set yours*, tell me the name of Alex’s girlfriend to make this fantastic prize yours. First in, best dressed! Answer via the comments box below.
PS, there is an extra secret chapter of Snakehead here.
*Australian entrants, only.
