I’m a winner!

16 Apr

The March Slice of Life Challenge, sponsored by Two Writing Teachers, has prizes. Everyone who blogs everyday for 30 days and comments on at least 3 other bloggers’ posts each day is entered into a random drawing for fabulous prizes. I won this book


Any Questions by Mary-Louise Gay. I don’t have it yet, but here is the publisher’s description.

Many children want to know where stories come from and how a book is made. Marie-Louise Gay’s new picture book provides them with some delightfully inspiring answers in a fictional encounter between an author and some very curious children, who collaborate on writing and illustrating a story.

Marie-Louise has scribbled, sketched, scrawled, doodled, penciled, collaged and painted the words and pictures of a story-within-a-story that show how brilliant ideas creep up on you when you least expect it and how words sometimes float out of nowhere asking to be written.

Any Questions? presents a world inhabited by lost polar bears, soaring pterodactyls, talking trees and spotted snails, with cameo appearances by some of Marie-Louise’s favorite characters — a world where kids can become part of the story and let their imaginations run wild… and just maybe they will be inspired to create stories of their own.

At the end of the book, Marie-Louise provides answers to many of the questions children have asked her over the years, such as “Are you Stella?” “How did you learn to draw?” “Can your cat fly?” “How many books do you make in one day?”

Here’s the video:

I can hardly wait for it to arrive!
