Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

For this weekend, we have a wonderful giveaway to get us all in the mood for Christmas. The real meaning of Christmas.



Phyllis Harris is an amazing illustrator, and had the honor of illustrating a new book written by Margaret Wise Brown (author of GOODNIGHT MOON). Even though Margaret has been gone for many, many years, this is a new book just released this holiday season of text never published. AMAZING!

You can purchase the book here.

For the Giveaway: 

Phyllis is giving away a signed copy of the book, as well as a print of the cover illustration, hand signed by the artist. You can also visit her site, for 20% off (code: FRIDAY20MONDAY) through Cyber Monday!

(If you would prefer a different print from her shop, that would be available as well. )


More of Phyllis’s amazing work can be found here: 






Here’s all you need to do: 

1) leave a comment below, one entry per person

2) make sure to include your email in the comment section

3) enter by Monday at 10pm Eastern Time (USA)

4) For ONE EXTRA entry, LIKE Phyllis’ Facebook page, and leave a comment below that you liked her page.
