Great Holiday Give: Day One ~ No Kiss For Mother

Happy Holidays everyone and welcome to the annual Great Holiday Give. Five days of free fun for the whole family. Actually, just five days of giveaways for five lucky winners, but you get the point.

Unlike in years past, I'll be giving away four days of brand spanking new publisher reprints of vintage classics with the last day reserved for my BFF and vintage children's book muse, Thingummery. She's going to be putting together a surprise grab bag for the last give, and her books are even more awesome than mine. She's also just opened up an Etsy shop if you are into mid-century design and craft books and the miscellaneous children's gem. (Anyone interested in a first edition copy of This Is Israel by M. Sasek?)

But before time gets away from me, let's talk about today's give. One reprint copy of the ever amazing No Kiss For Mother by Tomi Ungerer, a give hosted by the amazing folks at Phaidon Press who have been systematically republishing the bulk of all Tomi's backlist.

All you have to do to win this perfect stocking stuffer is comment on this post between now and midnight (CT), Sunday, December 9. A winner will be selected at random and announced the next morning. That simple. And fun.

Come back every day this week for a chance to win a new prize. Think of it as something to look forward to. Like an advent calendar of books!

Good luck!

What a great book! Not sure if your giveaway is open to a book lover from Canada, but it doesn't matter. I just had to tell you how much I love this book, and your blog.

Tomi Ungerer's wisdom, illustrations and wit are loved by my kids in France as they were my favourite as a kid in America.
