Yay! The Great Monday Give. It's still Monday, right? I haven't missed it by making red velvet cupcakes and sorting Valentine's and eating gobs of candy and drinking too much Malbac and being forced to sit through my son's requested viewing of The Phantom Menace, right? Let's just pretend I haven't lost a day and get on with it then.
I am giving this book away today, not because it's a vintage children's book (1999 is still eight years shy) but because it is written by one of my favorite vintage authors (Tomi Ungerer) and the folks at Phaidon (who are reprinting Tomi's children's books) sent it to me and we already have a copy so I'm sharing. If you child is anything like mine, he'll sob buckets on the first read of Otto: The Autobiography of a Teddy Bear. A kid-friendly story about the holocaust (really?), it's a testament to the power of love and childhood friendship, all written in the voice of one extraordinary teddy bear. To be entered to win this brand new book, all you have to do is comment on this post before February 27 - Sunday - at 11:59 PM. A winner will be selected the next day and announced here... like this...
The winner of last week's give of Who Took the Farmer's Hat? is gesbaby. E-mail me at webe(at)soon(dot)com with your info and I'll hook you up.
More sooner rather than later. Yay Monday!
