April Fools Giveaway #4 (CLOSED)

A few months back I mentioned that I picked up and read Misty of Chincoteague, by Marguerite Henry (click on the title to read my review) at the behest of one of my friends (and her little women.) They loved this book and I figured I'd give it a go myself. However, I'm not a horse fanatic and I had few expectations that I would actually enjoying read it. I was so wrong! I absolutely LOVED the story (and have gone on to purchase several of the sequels for our home collection!)

I picked up a copy of Misty of Chincoteague for one of you as well. I'm convinced that even if you aren't a lover of horse stories, you will find plenty of good reasons to enjoy this particular tale.

To win? Simply leave a comment below! This contest is open to U.S. and Canadian residents and will be open through Thursday, April 7th.

Extra entries:

* Blog about today's April Fool's Giveaways and earn one extra entry per contest. (Make sure to leave a second comment for that extra entry!)
* Become a "fan" on Facebook. (Because yes, I've stooped to Facebook!)




THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. THE WINNER IS #22 - RubynReba
Congratulations!

The "Revised Version" drew me in. And makes me curious. I'd love to know what it might be.

When I was a little girl I owned EVERY horse book ever written, I swear! This is one I loved and would love to have it on my shelf for my daughter and I to read together!

I think we might be going to Assateague Island next month - woo hoo! It would be awesome to have this to read aloud in the car, although we'll just use the library if I don't win. ( :

My mom read these books to us as kids. If you don't have it on your list, add Brighty of the Grand Canyon for when your boys are a bit older.
