Thanks to National Book Tokens and lots of lovely book publishers and booksellers, World Book Day, in partnership with schools all over the country, distribute over 15 million £1/€1.50 World Book Day book tokens to children and young people (that’s almost one for every child/young person under 18 in the UK and Ireland) every year on World Book Day. 

The £1 book tokens can then be swapped for one of our exclusive, new and completely FREE World Book Day books available from participating booksellers or used to get £1 off (€1.50 off in Ireland) any full price book or audiobook instead (as long as the book or audiobook costs at least £2.99 (or €3.99 in Ireland). The World Book Day £1/€1.50 books are a gift from booksellers, who fully fund the cost of the £1/€1.50 book token redemptions. The £1/€1.50 books are also available in braille, large print & audio via Guide Dogs and RNIB. 

We also have exclusive titles for Wales and Ireland. 

World Book Day book tokens will be valid from Thursday 18 February – Sunday 28 March 2021. In 2021 participating booksellers will honour the tokens beyond the 28 March while stocks last. Please contact your local bookseller to check if they are able to offer £1/€1.50 off other titles. Read our full terms and conditions here
