Contest: Dinosaurs do the holidays

Remember when I was all “Oh, we’ll have another contest!” and then we… didn’t? But here it is! Better late than never!

Ever since How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight?, little kids everywhere have become convinced that dinosaurs were just like us. Er, I mean, little kids have enjoyed these delightful stories by Jane Yolen, illustrated with Mark Teague’s gorgeous artwork. And just in time for the holidays, there’s more dinosaur goodness! I have both How Do Dinosaurs Say Merry Christmas? and How Do Dinosaurs Say Happy Chanukah? in hardcover right here on my desk, along with a wee little gift bag containing some little candy canes and a dreidel. It’s the perfect holiday package for your favorite little one, no matter your particular denomination.

Want to win ’em? 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 p.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 p.m. Pacific) on Sunday, December 9th, 2012. One winner will receive both books and the little gift bag, and then the rest of you can talk smack about me behind my back. (If you must. But please don’t.)

Ready? Go!
