Penangites! We’ve got fantastic news for you! The World’s Biggest Book Sale - Big Bad Wolf Books will be bringing thousands of its treasured books to the Pearl of the Orient, Penang Island at the end of this month! 

Book lovers visiting the Book Sale will have the chance to savour more time browsing at the Sale. Why do you ask? The Big Bad Box Sale – Midnight Madness will stay open for 14 hours from 10:00am to 12:00am! Soon to be nestled at the carpark Lotus’s Tanjung Pinang in Tanjung Tokong for 11 days starting from the 28th April up until 8th May, 2022, customers to The Big Bad Box Sale will have the opportunity for an incredibly fun and affordable book-shopping experience. 

Upon arriving, customers will be required to select and purchase either a “small” or a “big” box and fit in as many of their favourite books into the box. The small-sized box will be available at a price of RM99.90 while the big-sized box will be available for only RM119.90. Should customers want to opt to have both sizes, customers will be able to save RM19.90 as they will only have to pay for the Combo Box deal at a discounted price of RM199.90. Should a customer be interested in purchasing three big-sized boxes (if that is still not enough to fit in a house-sized appetite for books), customers can opt to go for the Fuyoh Bundle deal at RM299.90 and save RM59.80. 

After successfully obtaining the box at the cashier counter, customers may proceed to shop and be greeted by a sea of books of various genres ranging from children, fiction and non-fiction for all ages that are bound to be discovered and brought home, from the Wolf’s den. 

Andrew Yap, Co-Founder of Big Bad Wolf Books said, “The Big Bad Box Sale is one of our customers' most anticipated Book Sale. What’s exciting about it is that customers are able to select all the books they have been eyeing for and pay at an affordable price of RM99.90 or RM119.90. When you are in a bookstore, the expectation of spending in the range of RM99.90 will have you return home with only one or two books. With the upcoming The Big Bad Box Sale, you will be able to bring home a box filled with books for yourself and even for your friends or family without having to burn a hole in your pocket. How exciting is that?”

On top of this, customers who are eager to express their creativity can look forward to participating in an exclusive Colouring Contest that Big Bad Wolf Books will be hosting on the afternoon of 30th of April and on the 1st of May, 2022. Children aged 3 to 12 years old and adults aged 13 and above are welcome to flaunt their skills by colouring a beautifully illustrated drawing by Lisa Wee, who is a Peranakan Penang-born kidlit author and illustrator. The first twenty lucky participants of the Colouring Contest will stand a chance to win prizes courtesy of Big Bad Wolf Books worth more than RM1,500.

“I am honoured to be collaborating with Big Bad Wolf Books on this exciting Colouring Contest. My drawing illustration for this contest is inspired by various elements of diversity that many Malaysians embrace. As part of my collaboration, I look forward to donating children’s books to the pediatric ward of Penang General Hospital. Lisa Wee expressed.

What’s more, Big Bad Wolf Books’ partner and local Malaysian distributor, Kualiti Books, will also be bringing in an array of educational and entertainment Malay-language book titles from IMAN Shoppe, Prestasi, Pelangi, PTS, Pustaka Azhar, Sasbadi and many more. However, Kualiti Books will be excluded from the Box Deals, but customers will still be able to enjoy other deals at the Sale which includes the Box Set Promo, ‘Kisah Tauladan Kanak-Kanak’ and Clearance Stock which has a range from as low as RM2.

For a record of 13 years, Big Bad Wolf Books remains steadfast towards its mission in Changing The World, One Book At A Time. The Big Bad Box Sale – Midnight Madness is part of Big Bad Wolf Books’ 2022 reading campaign which aims to cultivate reading habits among Malaysians by offering books at affordable prices and making it accessible to all. The idea of choosing the first book to put into the box will potentially lead a customer to eventually filling their box with various types of books with what inspires them the most. The reading campaign is part of the Company’s mission to continue to encourage people to pick up a book or two either for themselves, for their friend or family and to empower them with knowledge. Big Bad Wolf Books is focused on creating a new generation of readers and increasing English literacy. 

As part of Big Bad Wolf Books’ Big Bad GiveBack community outreach programme, Big Bad Wolf Books will be donating books to Penggerak Komuniti Muda (PEKA) whereby PEKA plans to place these donated books at their newly launched mini library booths along Beach Street. And in the future, some books will also be available at the Chowrasta Market Bus Stand located along Jalan Penang as well as at the Japanese Garden located at Seri Delima. The aforementioned locations are projects led by Joshua Woo Sze Zeng, the Executive Director of PEKA who specialises in research on sustainable development, climate action, and public transportation.

Joshua Woo Sze Zeng, Executive Director of PEKA said, "PEKA looks forward to the fruitful collaboration in working together towards the shared vision and effort with Big Bad Wolf Books, which is to cultivate a reading habit among the people in Penang. We hope the revived library concepts will pique the interest of many Penangites once they stumble upon the several locations that we have and will work on in the near future."

During the Sale period, Lotus’s customers who spend a minimum of RM99.90 in a single receipt at The Big Bad Box Sale will also be entitled to a 5% off discount of the total purchase. To redeem the discount, customers will only be required to flash a receipt of any value from Lotus’s supermarket.
