I missed you! I brought you a present!

Darlings! Thanks for your patience while I filled up my brain in Chicago. As always, two days away means I’m now a scant three weeks behind on work, so that’s going to be fun for the foreseeable future. Ha!

Anyway, I will pick our Bigfoot winner a bit later today, but first, I have a quickie contest for those of you who are—like me—absolute fools for any Sabuda pop-up books. Today I’m giving away Robert Sabuda’s Beauty and the Beast, rendered in stunningly intricate pop-up gorgeousness, ready to be a special holiday gift or keepsake for your favorite little reader.

Want to win it? Of course you do! 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 15th, 2010 to enter. I’ll select a winner via random number generation, and then we can all sing “Be Our Guest” together. Or not. I just thought that would be entertaining.

Ready? Go!
