Win Empire of the Sun DVD and book

Steven Spielberg's 1987 war epic Empire of the Sun is another classic we thought you'd enjoy on these long winter nights. Based on JG Ballard's bestselling autobiographical novel, it's a tale of a wealthy British schoolboy living in Shanghai who is caught up in the horrors of the Second World War.

Starring a young Christian Bale, John Malkovich and Miranda Richardson, the Empire of the Sun two-disc special edition DVD is released on March 6 by Warner Home Video, pound;19.99. We have five copies of the DVD and five copies of the book, published by Harper Perennial, pound;7.99, to give away. To enter, simply answer this question: Shanghai is in China or Japan?

Mark your answers Banned Books or Empire of the Sun and send them on a postcard to the TES address or by email to Remember to include your address and contact details. Entries close March 9.
