Book Giveaway! Win one of two copies of The Rabbit Who Wished He Could Fly!

Hey All!

With the new school year under way around the country, I thought it would be great to give away two copies of The Rabbit Who Wished He Could Fly!  Many of you already have a copy, but wouldn't it be nice to have a copy to give to a friend, relative, school classroom or library to a new group of young readers?  What could be more altruistic than encouraging kids to read?

Plus, it'll help Jennifer and I as we will be publishing the second book in The Adventures of Kona and Friends titled The Lost Squirrel later this Fall!

There are many ways to enter, but the one that will get you two entries (make sure you click on the Rafflecopter link below to get the two points!!!) is to answer this question in the comments:

What was your absolute favorite kid's book growing up?  What about it moved you?

Here is Jennifer's favorite:
My favorite books were the Bugg Book series, written by Stephen Cosgrove & illustrated by Charles Reasoner. They're not in circulation anymore, but you can find a few on Ebay. They were stories about bugs, and the 1st page always started with "don't look up into the skies; instead look down and squint your eyes. Squint them both so very tight that if you look with all your might You'll find the land of Morethansmall. And in this land are buggs, that's all. (I still have it memorized!). I loved how imaginative it was and would pour myself in the stories of these little bugs... crickets, june bugs, and the mean old "Evil Weavel". It was a big reason I fell in love with art as a kid. I hoped to create magical vivid worlds on paper too.

Here is my favorite:
My favorite book as a kid was Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. I always dreamed of entering some sort of fantasy world, and I think this desire has directly led me to writing. When I write, I can create, and enter, any world I want! The drawing of Max and the monsters made it easy to imagine what it would be like to be Max and be King of the Monsters!

Good luck and share this contest with the world!!

  1. Oh, my goodness.....I would LOVE to win a copy of this book. I adore Jenny's artwork and this story is so tender. My little not-quite-4 yr old granddaughter and her mommy have moved in with us due to some very unhappy circumstances. It's challenging having a little one in the house again, but we are so blessed to have her. Books are a great comfort to her and it would be a blessing and joy to have this book to read to her!!! Thanks for the chance to be one of the winners!!!

    1. And I stiiiiiiiiiiiiilllll forgot to say what my favorite story was when I was a kid. Hard to say. Beverley Cleary was from the Portland, Oregon area like I was and so I am going to go with her books...all of them from the 50s and 60s. :) They told stories of kids that seemed like real kids and families with brothers and sisters that didn't always get along perfectly.....but always ended up well. Wonderful author.

    1. Love this story! For me, it's the pillows that are never good enough (I know that's not the exact lesson, but hey, we gotta be comfy when we sleep!!)
