Great Monday Give: Crictor

Hey guys... You'll notice here that hence forth, when I have the time and inclination, I'll try and scan the cover of The Great Monday Give. As such, you'll be pleased to know the giveaway book for this fine, sprinkly morning is a nice/ used/ paperback/ exlibrary copy of Crictor by Tomi Ungerer. All you have to do to be entered to win this awesome read is comment on this post before midnight ~ Sunday ~ August 31. I will randomly select a winner, and ship the book to them free of cost. (I do this because I find lots of cool books for next-to-nothing, and I'm all about paying it forward.)

Speaking of which, the winner of last week's giveaway of One Monster After Another is Alexis (who listens to Yaz, how cool is that!?!) at Knot Sew Crafty (which is a super cute site by the way) who admits... "I love books, I love vintage books more, and I love free vintage books the best!" Congrats! Please e-mail me your shipping info at webe@gvtc.com, and I will ship said book out to you as soon as I can drag butt to the post office and stick 'ur in the slot.

Stay tuned next week for another great give. In the meantime, be expecting a review shortly.

I just found your site through Small magazine and I love it! I have 3 girls who all love books. I love the illustrations in vintage books and how they sometimes take me back to my own childhood. Thanks for doing a giveaway!

AAAHHH! What happened to my childhood copy. It seems like you are constantly reminding me of old favorites that were somehow lost along the way... You just keep rubbing salt in the wound. Seriously though - I love these reminders. I have lists of them that I want to buy for my own kids.

I LOVE this book! I can remember reading it over and over when I was little. What a great giveaway this week!

Alison said...

I'd forgotten all about Crictor until I heard about it on the radio...and all of a sudden an image of the boa constrictor and his Victorian mistress came into my head like an old friend. I'm so glad I've rediscovered Tomi Ungerer!

I just wanted to say that I think your blog is awesome. I just did I post about children's books that I love and I used one of the images that you scanned. Hope you don't mind! I also stated you as a great source on the subject of children's literature. Can't wait to read more each week! :)
