Category Contests

If you have a child, chances are you’ve already seen David A. Carter’s amazing pop-up books. Maybe you even own a couple. Well, today’s your chance to snag a couple more.

Thanks to the generosity of the fine folks at Simon & Schuster, I have two gorgeous David A. Carter pop-up books to give away, today. First we have Snow Bugs, a fun little winter tale for the 4-8 year old set, and then I also have White Noise, which for some reason is also listed at Amazon as being for ages 4-8, despite the fact that the subtitle of this one is “A Pop-up Book for Children of All Ages.” Frankly, I think White Noise is actually more suitable for older kids or even adults who appreciate paper craft, but whatever. Draw your own conclusions.

One lucky Want Not reader is going to win this pair of books this weekend, and wouldn’t they make awesome holiday gifts? Yes, they would!

Want to win ’em? First, go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Monday, November 23rd, 2009 to be entered. Winner to be determined by random number generation and pop-y-ness. (I’m sure that’s a word, by the way.)

Ready? Go!
