Wallace & Gromit: Cracking Contraptions Manual by Haynes – review and giveaway #100books

We’ve been sent some great stuff to review as part of the 100 books challenge, but this has been one of Small’s favourites. So I’m particularly glad to have been sent two copies – meaning I can give one away without having to pry it out of Small’s grasping fingers!

We like Haynes stuff here. Small has a Haynes manual Death Star t-shirt that I got him just before Christmas, and Tim is slightly jealous that they don’t go up to his size. This book is everything you’d expect from a collaboration between experienced manual writers and slightly nutty contraption builders – especially ones who’ve created an Edit-o-Mattic machine :D. It’s great fun for Wallace and Gromit fans, and pretty good even if you’re not that up on them. There’s loads of pics from the various films, detailed drawings of all the contraptions, and descriptions too. Plenty of material to keep you going for quite a while.

If you fancy your own copy of this manual, all you need to do is leave me a pick-me comment. And if you’d like a second entry, tweet or FB this post, preferably explaining a little about the #100books challenge and what I’m trying to achieve with it, and leave me a second comment telling me where you’ve shared it. The competition will run until Friday 11th at midnight, and I’ll pick a winner using random.org on Saturday. (If that winner doesn’t get back to me by Friday 18th, I’ll pick again.) UK entries only please, as I’ve to cover the postage!

Book 63 of 100.

The boring small print…If you don’t want to miss out on any of the news on the challenge, please sign up to my rss feed – there’s an email link over in the side, or you can sub with a reader. I’m also on twitter using the hashtag #100books and facebook.

If you want to donate, please feel free, there’s a link in the sidebar or you can use this one. If you’d like to join in with your own version of the challenge, please leave me a comment to let me know so that I can link to you. And also, the booklink above is an affiliate link, but it’s set up with its own tracking id, so anything bought via a 100 book challenge link is separate to those usually on my blog, and I’ll be donating that money through to Oxfam as well.
