New Contest! Leave a Comment to Win "You Can Never Find a Rickshaw When It Monsoons: The World on One Cartoon a Day"

Since free stuff gives you wood, it's time for another fabulous contest!

THE PRIZE: A brand new copy of You Can Never Find a Rickshaw When It Monsoons: The World on One Cartoon a Day. "On June 1, 1990, less than a week after graduating from college, Mo Willems embarked on a year-long trip around the world. Travelling only with a notebook, pen and ink, and one change of clothes, he spent the next 12 months backpacking across more than 30 countries. At the end of each day, he drew the one event that stuck out in his mind the most–from the sublime to the ridiculous. Recently annotated by the illustrator and featuring a foreword from bestselling humor writer Dave Barry, You Can Never Find a Rickshaw When It Monsoons is a unique snapshot of an artist's coming-of-age as he tries to understand the world around him."

THE RULES: Leave a comment—any comment—by Monday, August 31, 2009, 11:59 p.m. If you don't have an ID you can sign in with, you can comment anonymously and leave your name or your initials; when I announce the winner, you'll know if you won and all you have to do is e-mail me to claim your prize.

More free stuff! Yay!

  24. There is a hole in my life the size of "You Can Never Find a Rickshaw When It Monsoons: The World on One Cartoon a Day", written by Mo Willems. The coincidence is remarkable, and I've been questioning its existence for days, but my carpenter never returns his phone calls.

  30. Awesome contest...I'm a college student and a young artist. I've always wanted to write and draw kids books like Mo's. He's great, so simple yet so captivating. I would love nothing more than to read cartoons about his world travels...what a guy. Thanks for the contest!
