Great Monday Give: In the Night Kitchen

Happy Monday.

This part of Texas finally got a rain. A whole weekend full of it. Rejoice. More importantly with chilly weather on the way, can't you just smell Halloween around the corner? Well, you all remember my little animal loving son, right? You might also recall his awesome Fawkes the Phoenix costume from last year. Yes? No? I have a pledge to myself to always hand-make the boy's costume, and for a while there it looked like he was going Ewok this year, which would have been awesome and easy to pull off. But now, much to my dismay, he wants to be Boba Fett. I can put together the body part of the costume without a problem, but the bounty hunter's helmet.... well, that's another story.

My husband claims that he can a helmet from scratch, but just as a backup plan I'm putting this out there. Anyone have a hand-me-down Boba Fett mask they are willing to trade for books? I am dead serious about this. Email me... webe(at)soon(dot)com.

But, anywho, that's enough about me. How about you guys? Up for grabs this Great Monday Give is a good paperback of the book about the little naked boy censors love to hate, Sendak's In the Night Kitchen. Anyone wanting to take this puppy home should comment on this post between now and September 25 at 11:59 PM. A winner will be selected at random and anounced the following morning.

And with an all-time low comment count, the winner of last week's give is Anne. E-mail me your contact info, and I will get the book to you before the US Postal Service shuts its doors. Promise.

I can't say that I have heard of him!! Where have I been hiding? Thanks for waking me up, I'm off to do some Sendak research :D

Perhaps last week's entries were low because many of us have (and love) the giveaway book already. This one, I don't. The closest we've gotten to this book is the animated Scholastic video version.

Amy said...

We'd love this. Thanks for the chance.

Rosita said...

Love this book! It's time to read this one to my grandson and granddaughter

Michelle said...

That looks like a neat book. Love the illustration. We enjoyed the rain this past weekend too. We definitely more than needed it!

i just wanna say i really appreciate your blog - you can leave me out of the book drawing contest. just stumbled upon it hunting for an image of Jack Kent's Fat Cat: A Danish Folktale (a book i requested for nightly read-aloud over and over as a child).
funny coincidence...i just uploaded a video to youtube's banned books week channel - a reading of In the Night Kitchen http://www.youtube.com/user/BannedBooksWeek#p/a/f/2/6zEvyQk2CBo
anyway. small web world.

Also, here is a tutorial for how to make a Boba Fett mask. http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-a-cardboard-costume-helmet/
