Great Monday Give: The Big Orange Splot

Happy happy joy joy... All July Fourth hangovers have passed on. There is mild rain in this parched city of mine. The boy is finally back at his preschool for a three week summer camp. All is well. So without further yip yap....

The Great Monday Give for today is an awesome but not-so-vintage paperback copy of The Big Orange Splot. BEST BOOK EVER. Live it, love it and pass it on. To be entered to win, simply comment on this post before midnight ~ July 12 ~ Sunday. A winner will be selected by the highly-technical blind scroll and point method and announced the following day.

And now, the winner of last week's give, her very own copy of Where the Wild Things Are.... Lise!!!! Congrats and send me your mailing info to webe(at)soon(dot)com. So long sillies.

Gosh, I remember checking this book out of the library ages ago and LOVing it, but I can't remember why! (3 kids + aging + summer vacation = no memory to speak of) I would love the opportunity to see it again!

Orange is our favorite color at our home. Could be because my husband is a huge Tennessee fan. :) Anyway we would love a copy of this book.

I'd love to give this book a chance with my kids (hmm, from the writer who brought us "Big Bob and the Magic Valentine's Day Potato"). Thanks for giving us a chance to get it!

Count me in! I work in a small library, and would happily add it to our (much too tiny) children's section. After I read it, of course! : )

I'm remodeling and would do well to remember the lessons from this book. You highlight the best stories. :^)

I love this book!!! In fact, my graduate thesis, in which I look at the interiors of immigrants homes, made many references to the story of the book. So, so good.

Oh I forgot about this one! It WAS awesome.
