Tumtum & Nutmeg Giveaway

So here's the scoop. If you've been around here for the past few months, you'll know that Bookworm1 and I have become huge fans of Tumtum & Nutmeg, which was first recommended to us by Stephanie at Simple Things. I have mentioned these mice a time or two. They are adorable. They are cute. They can almost make you love the idea of having mice living in your home. (Almost, but perhaps not quite.) We love these stories.

Since I read it, I've been harping about it at every available opportunity and so I asked Little, Brown Books for Young Readers if they'd be interested in hosting a giveaway with Tumtum & Nutmeg: Adventures Beyond Nutmouse Hall which they were very agreeable to do.

Therefore I am delighted to announce that I have THREE copies of Tumtum & Nutmeg: Adventures Beyond Nutmouse Hall to give away to three of you. You'll definitely want to grab a copy of this book, even if you don't win, and read it soon. Why? Because the NEXT Tumtum & Nutmeg book is due to be released at the end of September!



Ladies and Gents, get ready for Tumtum & Nutmeg: The Rose Cottage Tales!

I want to be right up front in telling you all that I declined an ARC of the book because I am most interested in purchasing the hardback copy of The Rose Cottage Tales to match my hardback copy of the first set of Tumtum & Nutmeg tales (also purchased.) I like these little guys that much and I know our family will be enjoying them for years to come. It is my delight to support this book!

My partnering with Little, Brown for this giveaway is simply to motivate you all to get into these stories with your kids and enjoy them! I think I have the backing of Stephanie and Amy both in saying that you'll love them! (Click on their names to read their individual rave reviews if you don't believe me.)

THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED

Enjoy, courtesy of Little, Brown for Young Readers! Don't forget to spread the word! I kinda have a "no child left behind" policy (heh heh) regarding Tumtum & Nutmeg - already having gifted it a few times over to mothers of new babies. Have I mentioned these stories are just fun? Ok, just checking . . .

Hey, here's my comment for entry in the giveaway! I will look into these books because I'm looking for good read-alouds for my 4 year old. These may be aimed for an older audience, but everyone says they grow so fast!

I'm laughing at the "no child left behind" policy.

I tend to feel guilty entering my name for blog give-aways for children's books--there are so many other deserving souls out there who have children to enjoy such things!

And then there are the fiction give-aways that I choose not to enter because I generally only read fiction once and can get it from the library anyway.

And then...

So that's why I haven't been commenting on your last quite a few posts (since I'm *sure* you were wondering :-P)

We had mice in our house this week, running through our bedroom, no less. I was happy when the trap went SNAP (twice), and then tried not to think about it as I read Stuart Little to my kids the next day!

With all the good recommendations, this has been on my "purchase when there's a good sale" list for quite a while! I would love to win a copy!
