I'm really excited about the Great Monday Give this week as it is my all time favorite by one of my all time favorites. Calico the Wonder Horse or The Saga of Stewy Stinker by Virginia Lee Burton is so innovative and inventive, that on first read, you almost can't believe how great it is. What I am offering up is a very tight and nice mylar covered ex-library hardcover. Near perfect really and a great addition to any library. To win, all you have to do is comment on this post between now and midnight ~ Sunday ~ October 26. At which point, a winner will be selected using the highly technical, blind/scroll/and point method.
Now, for the winner of last week's give, Eloise, drum roll please.... The winner is... Naomi... who had this to say on the matter...
My fifty-something year old aunt has always been obsessed with Eloise and I've had some apprehensions about sharing the books with my four year old since Eloise is a bit... haughty. I think it could be fun, though. Rawther.
I understand the apprehension, but my son thinks the haughtiness is rawther hilarious so I believe your girl will be OK. If however, the next time you stay in a hotel, she picks up the phone and dials room service -- charge it please and thank you very much -- DON'T BLAME ME! Congrats and please e-mail me your shipping info to webe(at)soon(dot)com.
That's all for now.
