Great Monday Give: Millions of Cats

Ha. You guys thought I wasn't gonna show, didn't you? My son swam today for the first time unassisted, so I've been too proud to settle down and write, but hey, one small swim for man... The Great Monday Give for today is a great 10-year-old paperback copy of a perennial fave, Millions of Cats. To be entered to win a most-loved Gag classic, simply comment on this post before midnight ~ Sunday ~ May 24. A winner will be selected at random and posted here the next day.

And so, the winner of last week's give of the Berenstain Bears collection is... TA DA... Vivi. Congrats and send me your info to webe(at)soon(dot)com. Shortly thereafter, I will send you out the book love. Tootles for now, kids.

Oh, I had forgotten about this one. I have an eight month old daughter who just lights up whenever she sees a cat, so this should absolutely go on our reading list!

I don't know this book... But would love to have it in our collection... My kids love cats, and I plan on doing a Dr. Seuss "Cat in the Hat" and all sorts of whiskered cats themed party for my daughter in December. This would be a great gift for her. have a great day.

I love Wanda Gag's books. My favorites are this one and "Gone is Gone".

Excellent- I love this book.

Sharon said...

I've always liked this book but I'd have to say my favorite Wanda Gag book would be Nothing At All. That is a vintage book I'd love to find.
