No, really—this next awesome contest is all about Hold on to Your Horses, a delightful children’s book written by Sandra Tayler and illustrated by Angela Call. I have a soft spot for fellow writer mamas, of course, but trust me when I say that I get a lot of folks who want to show me what they’ve built or written where I then end up trying to figure out how to respond politely, because what they’ve just shown me is boring at best or bad at worst.
Thankfully, Hold on to Your Horses is one of those children’s books that tells a great story with beautiful pictures; I loved it immediately. Here, don’t take my word for how great it is (but it is great): Go download the free PDF and see for yourself. I dare you not to love it, in fact.
Five lucky Want Not readers will win signed copies of Hold on to Your Horses because Sandra Tayler is extremely pretty. And generous. For a chance to win, simply leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. Eastern (8:59 p.m. Pacific) on Wednesday, September 3rd, 2008. One comment per person, valid email address required. Winners to be determined by random number generation and stamping of hooves. (Whose hooves? Well, that’s part of the mystery, right there.)
