Great Monday Give: Wynken, Blynken and Nod

I am so psyched to review today's book that I'll get through the Great Monday Give quickly.

This week's free-vintage-book giveaway is...

Wynken, Blynken and Nod by Eugene Field with illustrations by Barbara Cooney; a hardback, ex-library book in very good condition.

To be entered to win? Just leave a comment on this post before midnight ~ Sunday, September 21. I will select a winner at random and ship the book to them FREE OF CHARGE!

And now....last week's Great Monday Give winner of How the Rabbit Stole the Moon is...

The lovely California girl, Brooke at please hello who is all for bunnies stealing the moon.

Congrats and all that jazzy jazz... please send me your info to webe(at)soon(dot)com and I will get the book to you as fast as humanly possible, that is if that human is a 102-year-old woman, confided to a wheelchair, who relies on her irresponsible, 22-year-old home-health care aid to get her to the post office once a month.

Now, for The Big Orange Thing!

I love this book! the doobie brothers recorded it as a song on a kid's album called "In Harmony" in 1980. Also on the album are songs by Carly Simon and James Taylor - I think it's still available. The best kid's album ever!!

I just found your blog and I must say I love it. And I also love Barbara Cooney! What fun to remember all of these cool books I used to read but can no longer find.

Amy said...

I just found your blog and feel I have found a kindred spirit. What a great idea!
