Great Monday Give: The Bee on the Comb

Good morning kids. My sister is a high-powered record executive in NYC (wink Weez) and is here this week on her way to SXSW, so I'm not sure how much time I have before the boy wakes up and she gets rudely awaken demanding Starbucks and a breakfast taco. That said, I've never reviewed this book, but I have reviewed its prequel (Masquerade) and I found a great copy for a dollar and anything Kit Williams sneezes on is gold in my book so here it is. The Great Monday Give for today is a stellar hardcopy of Kit Williams' treasure-hunt book published here with no name (that was the hunt, to guess the name) but was eventually revealed to be called The Bee on the Comb. All you have to do to be entered to win this stunning artistic achievement is comment on this post between now and Sunday, March 21 at 11:59 PM. A winner will be chosen at random and announced the next day, as usual!

As for last week's give, a pretty swank copy of The Tyger Voyage..... goes to..... Kristie. Simply send me your mailing info to webe(at)soon(dot)com and I will see if I can figure out what my son did with it and mail it out right away. Congrats and .... oops, the boy just woke up. I may or may not be back today with a review.... wish me luck.

Neato! I found Masquerade at a second-hand bookshop a while ago, and would love to have the companion! What an interesting fellow that Mr Kit Williams is!

Oh, what a gorgeous cover!! Looks like a very warm book and anything that has anything to do with a treasure hunt is a welcome addition in our house. I am also fascinated by bees and their amazing work ethic and beauty. Please pick me!! :-) Hope you are well. Have a great week.

I just discovered your blog and I love it, not least of all because of the earliest books you reviewed was my favorite -- A House is a House for Me. My preschooler would love this book.

Just wanted to thank you for introducing me to the Froggy series. My soon-to-be 3 year old daughter is obsessed. And you gave me great idea to get audio CD for the car. Froggy Gets Dressed is her fave. Also, just received books from you in great condition. So once again thanks for all that you do. Dee
