As promised, I have a copy of the Enchanted Lion reprint of Jim Flora's Kangaroo for Christmas for day three of the Great Holiday Give. Both Enchanted Lion and Phaidon have done an incredible job of recreating the original look and feel of these old books. Phaidon's Ungerer reprints and Enchanted Lion's Flora titles have that wonderful matte feel that makes such a rich tactile experience to the reader. Love love love.
All you have to do to be entered to win this brand new copy of Kangaroo for Christmas is comment on this post by 11:59 PM Sunday, December 4. A winner will be selected at random and announced (along with all the other winners from the week) on Monday, December 5.
The Great Holiday Give lasts all week, so be sure and check back each day to find out about a new vintage reprint and enter to win a different book. And if you missed the past two days, throw your hat in the ring now...
Day One: Christmas Eve at the Mellops by Tomi Ungerer
Day Two: Professor Wormbog in the Search for the Zipperump-a-zoo by Mercer Mayer
This book was sent to me by the publisher to giveaway, but I don't think I need to tell you that this in no way educated my opinion of the publisher or the title in question. I've been bragging on this book since the beginning of time!
Good luck everyone!
