Great Monday Give: Squirrels

Just to let you folks who abstain from blog reading on the weekends, I've started an ongoing and occasional new weekend feature here on VKBMKLs. I hope to interview contemporary authors about their vintage book leanings and thought Lane Smith was a great place to start. Author and illustrator of many books, most recently Grandpa Green, he is also the co-curator of Curious Pages, a Website where he shows off some of the awesome and quirky books in his vintage children's book collection. Check the two-part interview out here.

And, for the Great Monday Give this morning, I'll be giving away a newish but used paperback copy of Brian Wildsmith's Squirrels. All you have to do to be entered to win is comment on this post between now and 10/9, Sunday at 11:59 PM. A winner will be selected at random and announced the following day.

The winner of last week's give is Cory! Congrats and e-mail me your info to webe(at)soon(dot)com.

Bye all!

We have no Wildsmith in our home library, and the recent Wild Animals post made me think that may be a big problem!

My children are such nature lovers... they would love this! We've been laughing as we watch the crazy squirrels harvest hickory nuts in our front yard lately :)

I really enjoyed the Lane Smith interview, by the way... I must say, MY SON LOVES SQUIRRELS!! He eventually wants a squirrel birthday party. Where we are there aren't any. I would love to win this. Hope I can. Thanks for the chance! Have a great day!

I'm a school librarian and it's squirrel week in my library. It's fall and I love squirrels! Plus,lots of opportunity for terrible puns like "We're NUTS for books!" I have heard of the Wildsmith book and tried to order for our library but it is out of print. We want one! Yay, SQUIRRELS! Just read Erroll to the kindergarteners today...it's my new favorite squirrel story.

Oooh, I hope I win. I'm a fan of Brian Wildsmith! Fingers crossed!
