New Contest! Leave a Comment to Win "The Underneath" by Kathi Appelt

For someone who refuses to champion books because he's too busy making Zac Efron photo collages, I sure do give away a lot of books, don't I? Well, you'd better savor these literary prizes because no one's getting any of my collages.

THE PRIZE: A brand-new copy of The Underneath by Kathi Appelt, with drawings by David Small. "One kitten's one moment of curiosity sets off a chain of events that is astonishing, remarkable, and enormous in its meaning. For everyone who loves Sounder, Shiloh, and The Yearling, for everyone who loves the haunting beauty of writers such as Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, Flannery O'Connor, and Carson McCullers, Kathi Appelt spins a harrowing yet keenly sweet tale about the power of love—and its opposite, hate—the fragility of happiness and the importance of making good on your promises." National Book Award Finalist; ALA Newbery Honor Book; PEN Center USA Literary Award for Children's Literature.

THE RULES: Leave a comment—any comment—by Friday, January 15, 2010, 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. One winner will be chosen at random. Anyone in the world can enter, even those people who have won before.

    (I know it's a hound dog, but weiner went much better with pussies)
