WORLD BOOK DAY'S OODLES OF DOODLESRead more ...
9th November - 3rd December 2017
To bring our 20th anniversary celebrations to a close, World Book Day is auctioning off exclusive artwork by some of the UK's most talented children's illustrators. From Jim Field to Lydia Monks, Chris Riddell to Nadia Shireen, now is your chance to snap up a unique Christmas present or treat for yourself, created by your favourite illustrator. Have a browse through the gallery and get bidding...
Bidding closing times vary for each illustration so that you can bid on more than one item. Postage and packaging for each artwork is £5 and all are A4 size and framed.
All the funds raised will go to World Book Day, a small charity that celebrates authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) reading. Every year World Book Day sends over 15 million book tokens to schools all over the UK and Ireland, whilst also equipping schools, libraries, booksellers and parents with the resources to help children and young people get excited about reading.
Thank you – and good luck

1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
