Author: J.K. Rowling ‘One more curse… my faithful servant at Hogwarts… Harry Potter is as good as mine.’ Harry Potter’s fourteenth year is proving to be a memorable one, not only is it the four hundred and twenty-second Quidditch World Cup but Hogwarts is playing host to its own unique wizarding competition, the Triwizard Tournament. The school finds itself playing host to two visiting magical schools – the enchanting Beauxbatons Academy and the formidable Durmstrang Institute. Only three of the bravest witches or wizards over the age of seventeen may compete; their names to be drawn out of the enticing, golden Triwizard Cup. But this is no Quidditch match, the reward is glory but the perils are lethal and somebody has other plans in store. For when the time comes, the unthinkable happens; an extra name is recalled from the cup, Harry Potter’s name. Now Harry is fighting for more than victory, he is battling for his life, against an unseen sinister force. With even his friends doubting him, Harry finds himself more alone than ever and in the greatest of danger. The map of the wizarding world unfolds in this gripping fourth novel in the award-winning Harry Potter series. Waterstones invites you to compete alongside Harry as he faces fire-breathing dragons, delves to the deepest depths of the lake, and (most dauntingly of all) learns to dance. This will be a parting of the ways, for, after this, nothing can ever be the same again. Take hold of the Goblet of Fire and who knows where it will take you.

Author: Roald Dahl So it goes that in Chapter Two of his outstanding 1975 tale Dannythe Champion of the World, Roald Dahl first breathed life into the notion of the BFG – the Big Friendly Giant, ‘three times as tall as ordinary men and his hands were as big as wheelbarrows.’ Seven years later, Roald Dahl saw fit to give this extraordinary character his own stage. Again in close collaboration with master-illustrator Quentin Blake, The BFG was born, a properly epic adventure underpinned with all of Roald Dahl’s wit and heart. When the young orphan Sophie finds herself seemingly kidnapped by a strange, cloaked giant, initial alarm finally gives way to the deepest of friendships and the discovery of wisdom and courage in the smallest of places. Held aloft by Roald Dahl’s ceaseless invention and power of wordplay, The BFG ranks as one of his greatest triumphs and for over three decades has been a treasured part of children’s lives the world over. Waterstones invites you to get ready for the adventure of a lifetime, it’s a winsquiffler we tell you! It’s a golden phizzwizard of a fantastic ride! Now the magic of Roald Dahl is brought to life in these new illustrated paperback editions from the imagination of Quentin Blake, Roald Dahl’s own favorite illustrator. With brand new, bold cover designs and Blake’s quintessential pen and ink drawings, these are classic editions for every generation to enjoy. Roald Dahl was a spy, ace fighter pilot, chocolate historian, and medical inventor. He was also the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, The BFG, and many more brilliant stories. He remains the world's number one storyteller. One of Britain’s finest living illustrators, Quentin Blake has put pictures to more than three hundred books and was Roald Dahl’s favorite illustrator. As an author, he has written and illustrated a number of bestselling children’s books including The Green Ship and Angelica Sprocket’s Pockets. In 1999 he became the first-ever Children’s Laureate and in 2013 he was knighted for services to illustration.
