Day Three Great Holiday Give: The World is Round


Today's give is the brand new edition of The World is Round by Gertrude Stein, illustrated by Clement Hurd, a book that was first brought to my attention years ago by my favorite blogger, Ariel Winter. In this 75th anniversary edition (that is pretty hefty and swank, BTW), Harper Design includes a foreword by Thacher Hurd (Clement's son) and an afterword by Edith Thacher Hurd (children's book author and Clement's wife). Very nice edition of a fabulous book.

To win your very own brand spanking new copy of this, the only children's book by a literary legend, simply comment on this post before midnight CT on Sunday, November 24. A winner for this give (and the other four daily gives) will be selected at random and the winners will be announced Monday the 25th.

Make sure you check back on Monday's post to find out if you're a winner!

Day One Great Holiday Give: Little Boy Brown
Day Two Great Holiday Give: Cranberryport Books
Day Four Great Holiday Give: New York Review Children's Collection Two-fer

Happy humpday all!
