The calendars come in four themes: Disney, Disney Princess, Marvel and The Gruffalo and Friends – meaning there’s something to suit all your bookworms.

Each one comes in a presentation case and has 24 books with stories featuring all your kids favourites.

For instance, the Disney Princess calendar includes everyone from Belle and Ariel to Moana and Rapunzel.

Meanwhile, the Marvel calendar showcases superheroes such as Spiderman, The Hulk and the Avengers.

The Disney offering features characters such as 101 Dalmatians, Mickey Mouse and even the Incredibles.

And the Gruffalo and friends version is based on based on the family-favourite picture books The Gruffalo, Room on the Broom, The Snail and the Whale and more.

You can shop the full range of storybook advent calendars on The Works website.

The calendars usually cost £19.99, but at the moment they’re available for just £12 meaning a saving of 40%.

That said, it’s definitely worth shopping around as The Works isn’t the only retailer stocking them and it’s not always the cheapest.

We found a slightly less expensive option for the Marvel, Disney and Gruffalo calendars at WH Smith.

All three were available for pre-order for just £9.99.

But if you’ve got a kid that’s a Disney princess fan, you might want to stick to the Works.

That calendar currently costs £15.99 to pre-order at WH Smiths – almost £4 more than at the Works.

We couldn’t find any other retailers stocking the advent calendars yet, but as they launch they may well pop up in more places.

Keep your eyes peeled and shop around to make sure you’re getting the best deals you can.

It’s also worth comparing delivery costs to make sure you’d getting a good deal there.
