THEY'RE some of the most loved children's books in Australia….. and your family is about to be offered them in a ridiculously good deal.

It's all part of our Great Australian Storybook promotion that kicks off tomorrow.

The titles available over the next two weeks make up the heart and soul of children's book sections in all good book stores.

But buy this paper, and our sister Sunday title, over the next fortnight and you'll get them at a bargain $2.30.

Reading is vital for a child's development so it's a great fit for our company to be helping you plant the reading seed with the children dearest to you.

Possum Magic, Waltzing Matilda, Pig the Pug and more are all on offer in our Great Australian Storybook Collection ­- with the newspaper every day.

Remember, grab The Sunday Mail tomorrow for a FREE copy of Possum Magic and a collector's case. From next week, grab The Observer every day and The Sunday Mail on Sundays.
