WIN SCAMPERS!

It’s time to win a signed, hardcover copy my new picture book: Scampers Thinks Like A Scientist!

Scampers Thinks Like a Scientist is the book that received a five-star review from Foreward Reviews. It’s the book that nabbed a glowing notice from the difficult-to-please Kirkus. And it’s the book that stars the cutest mouse in the history of ever.

Oh. My. God. Just look at that widdle face!

So let’s get started!

How To Enter

To enter the Scampers drawing, all you need to do is leave a comment below that answers this question:

Which fictional character would you most want to have as a next-door neighbor?

That’s it! Leave a comment and you’ll be entered in the random drawing for Scampers!

But Wait!

Do you already have a copy of Scampers? That’s great! Thank you!

Enter the contest anyway.

After all, if you win, you can donate your prize to a local school or library. You’d be a hero!

Book News, Everybody's Favorite Book

And The Winner Is…

At long last, it’s time to find out who will win the bestest holiday and/or non-holiday gift ever.

It’s the amazing picture book that has it all—and more.

It’s the ideal story for the reader who has everything, the non-reader who has nothing, and the sometimes-reader who has some things.

You guessed it, we’re talkin’ about…

Everybody’s Favorite Book!

So! Let’s get started!

The ballots have been made.

They have been dumped in the Santa Hat of Gift Giverishness.

We’ll pick those ballots off the floor…

And Our Loyal Judge (a judge I probably should’ve fired by now) will select the winner.

(And since Christmas is a bit too close for comfort, Our Loyal Judge has been firmly instructed to stop wasting everyone’s time by endlessly mixing the ballots—which he is wont to do. In the spirit of the holiday, he agreed.)

And heeeere we go!

And the winner is…

How did that get in there?

Select again! And the winner is…

What did you do, Judge? Come on, let’s go!

And the winner is…

I will kill you.

STOP WASTING EVERYONE’S TIME!

PICK A BALLOT!

And the winner is…

Patricia Tilton!

 

Congratulations Patricia! To claim your prize, all you have to do is head over to the “Hire Me!” menu item and send me an email!

And to all you fine folks who didn’t win, fear not! There’s still time to buy a copy of Everybody’s Favorite Book for yourself, your child, a random child, your significant other, your insignificant other, your friend, frenemy, colleague, mailman, plumber, and/or the nice fellow who picks up your recycling.

It really is the perfect gift for everyone. Order it HERE, or buy it wherever fine and/or subpar books are sold.

Happy Holidays, Everybody!
