Great Monday Give: Eloise

Good morning gang. So the Great Monday Give for today is a near mint, hardcover, dust-jacketed reprint of Eloise, one that I got for free from the publisher some ten years ago at a party at The Plaza Hotel when the movie rights were sold. I still have my original childhood copy, so I figured there is no reason to hold onto this one when someone else could be enjoying it. This copy is in "give-it-away-as-a-birthday-gift", almost perfect condition and would made some kid very, very happy.

To be entered to win, comment on this post before midnight ~ Sunday ~ October 12. I will pick a winner at random and post it here a week from today.

That said, please give it up for the winner of last week's give, Jaime! Congrats and please e-mail me at webe(at)soon(dot)com with your shipping info, and I will mail The Little Red Hen to you sometime in the near future....

That said, happy Monday folks. Let the games begin!

Last week's little red hen had kind of scary pictures (mine had pencil? illustrations). But Eloise looks like a lot of fun :-)

I've never read Eloise before, but I've been dying to have a copy for awhile now. Seems like she'd be just my cup of tea! :)

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.
