Great Monday Give: Petunia

Lovely Monday morning here in San Antonio... My nasturtiums are flourishing in the front yard, and the boy's birthday is just around the corner. (As you long time readers know, I mostly only buy new books on special occasions, and this year the birthday purchases are Uncle, The Wonderful O and the most definitely not vintage third book in the Hiccup series, How to Speak Dragonese.) That said, today is a great day to give away this vintage copy of Petunia by Roger Duvoisin that's been staring me in the face all weekend. I know I've given it away before, but it's one of those books I can't say no to when I find it. To be entered to win this gently-loved but still awesome hardcover, simply comment on this post before 11:59 PM on Sunday night, April 25. A winner will be selected at random and announced the next morning.

As for last week's give of Sir Toby Jingle's Beastly Journey... the winner is Tracysweetangl. E-mail me at webe(at)soon(dot)com with your info and the book will be yours. Thanks for reading gang. See you in a bit.

That's a great book. I haven't read that one in a long time!

Just so you know, I don't need a copy of the book, so please leave me out of the drawing. I would hate to take it away from someone who really wants it.

A perfect choice for a give-away. We have many of his books (he's fast become my favorite illustrator) but am missing this one...fingers crossed.

I didn't know this one either (what a sad childhood I had! Good thing I didn't know it!), so I went and read your review. It sounds wonderful. Thanks so much for the chance.

Hi - just found your website when looking for the book "Tell me some more..." One of the best things about becoming pregnant was realizing I could read all my favorite books to my child (due date 4/28/10, so wish me luck! :)), and Petunia is one of my favorite books! My mom still jokes that I hoard more books than I read, though I think that's unfair ;) You have such a great site - thanks for keeping it up!
