Great Monday Give: Chanticleer and the Fox

As promised, The Great Monday Give returns. One lucky commentor will win a nice/ hardcover/ vintage/ ex-library edition of the 1959 Caldecott Medal winner Chanticleer and the Fox by Barbara Cooney.

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post before midnight, Sunday ~ June 8, and a winner will be selected at random by the awesome (and highly-scientific) blind scroll and point method.

I will ship the book to the winner for free, and you can feel good that I am giving away great vintage books that I have found for a song instead of hawking them at a bloated price. (Though someday when my son grows older, I'll probably have to purge my collection and won't that be a lucky day for a lot of folks?)

That said, good luck, and keep an eye out for a book review later today. (I'll be giving props to Come Over to My House by Theo LeSieg, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss, with illustrations by Richard Erdoes -- so don't miss it!)
