The Great Holiday Give Day Two: Professor Wormbog in the Search for the Zipperump-a-zoo

The folks at Premiere Author Publishing sent me a copy of Professor Wormbog in the Search for the Zipperump-a-zoo for the Great Holiday Give. I'd never heard of them before, but they seem to facilitate a sort of self-publishing platform for established authors. Though the format isn't as aesthetically awesome as the original oversized-edition with the matte pages, still, it's back in print which is a zillion times better than having it languish in over-priced eBay obscurity. Plus, the idea of authors having a bit more control over reprinting out-of-print books intrigues me.

I can't tell if these are publicist run yet, but it seems they've gotten Mercer Mayer to sign up for Twitter and Facebook, which is super in its own right.

To be entered to win this amazing reprint, simply 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. Throw your name in the hat for the book from yesterday, too...

Day One: Christmas Eve at the Mellops by Tomi Ungerer
Day Three: Kangaroo for Christmas by Jim Flora


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!

Read along on Facebook, tumblr, Twitter and Etsy!

Oh I loved Mercer Mayer when I was little... loved finding the hidden spider and cricket (I think it was?) on each page.
