You can’t get a cup of tea big enough or a book long enough to suit me. – C S Lewis

We’ve teamed up with British ceramics manufacturer Emma Bridgewater to give one lucky winner the chance to get their hands on a bundle of beautifully packaged books and a classic polka dot teapot complete with teacup and saucer. Emma Bridgewater believes everyday kitchen china sits right at the heart of our lives, with each cup, bowl, jug, and plate holding our personal stories and reflecting shared moments – and when it looks this gorgeous, it’s guaranteed to turn your afternoon read and cuppa into an absolute treat.

To complement this fantastic prize, we’ve put together a bundle of eye-catching classic crime reads. With three stunning classic criminal tales from Vintage Books and two beautiful books from the Penguin English Library collection, each and every one deserves pride of place on your bedside table. The bundle will include Wilkie Collins’ The Moonstone, Arthur Conan Doyle’s A Study in Scarlet, Margery Allingham’s Coroner’s Pidgin, Edgar Allen Poe’s The Murders in Rue Morgue and Patricia Highsmith’s Ripley’s Game.
