The first book featured is Quick Quack Quentin by Kes Gray and Jim Field, on sale this month, and the other titles will be: David Melling’s Hugless Douglas Goes to Little School; Pat-a-Cake’s Clap Hands Unicorns and Clap Hands Llamas; Ten Little Monsters by Mike Brownlow and Simon Rickerty; The Night Before The Night Before Christmas by Kes Gray and Claire Powell; Charlie and Lola: I Will Not Ever Never Eat a Tomato by Lauren Child; I Love My Dinosaur by Giles Andreae and Emma Dodd and Kipper's Beach Ball by Mick Inkpen.
Phil Henderson, buying manager books, Asda, said: “Asda has been a partner of BBC Children in Need for 18 years, and we’re delighted that this year Hachette Children’s Group has come on board to sell a range of children’s books to support the cause.”
The promotion will run from this month until July next year.
