Great Monday Give: Where the Wild Things Are

When I did the post on the Best in Children's Books last week, one reader mentioned a version of The Velveteen Rabbit illustrated by Maurice Sendak in Volume 35 and ~ of course ~ I just had to eBay it ASAP. In honor of this delightful find, and the fact that I've been digging the terrible yellow eyes project (MAJORLY) since it was mentioned on We Heart Books, I will be giving away a very nice, ever-so-gently used paperback copy of Where the Wild Things Are and posting a few scans from the aforementioned story. Enjoy!

I'll be out of town through the weekend, so this Give will run for two weeks instead of the usual one. All you have to do to be entered to win is comment on this post before midnight, July 5 ~ Sunday. I will announce a winner the next morning. So without further yadda yadda, here are the promised scans. (Oh, yea... and scroll down to the bottom for last week's winner.)

The winner of last week's give is Dawn D. Lion... Congrats and send me your mailing info to webe(at)soon(dot)com and Amigo will be on the way shortly. I bye.

My first thought was "I've got the Velveteen Rabbit; don't need another." Then I saw the scans, and I realized I DO need it!!! Thanks for the chance to win.

I adore Sendak so the Velveteen Rabbit with his illustrations will have to be added to my wish list!

This is a wonderful book, and Maurice Sendak illustrations are just beautiful. Have you read the book in which the little girl is trying to find the perfect gift for her mother, with a rabbit's help? It's lovely, and of course I can't remember the name.

Thank you!
