Boy + Bot {giveaway!}

It’s no super big secret that I love this book. And I adore Ame Dyckman. (She tweets about squirrels! And blanket forts! And puns!)

So when she had an item up for bids at Jen Malone’s Hurricane Sandy auction, I raised my paddle a few times. Poor Ame will have to muddle her way through one of my PB manuscripts, but some goodies came along with her critique.

And the thing is, I already have a copy of Boy + Bot because it’s amazing. So I figured one of you might want this? That’s it above, signed by the sparkly Ame herself.

Also! Some other Boy + Bot swag…I am tempted to open this little goodie bag, but I see a bookmark, a frisbee, a sticker and a bracelet!

Just comment here sometime before Turkey Day at noon PST, and I’ll pick a winner.

Am I thankful for you? AFFIRMATIVE!

PS: Kate Messner and Joanne Levy have been running another amazing auction to raise funds for Sandy Relief. Some auctions are still open over at Joanne’s corner of the internet, so check it out! (Just don’t bid against me!)

    As I’ve always said, “The more people I meet, the more I like my robot!”. So sign me up to win and just ignore me if you see me waving my arms and shouting “Danger, Danger Will Robinson!”

    I like robots. I like picture books. And I adore Dan Yaccarino’s artwork.

    Do I want this giveaway? Affirmative. (Also, I suddenly feel acutely aware of how uncool my signature is.)

    A story that you can enjoy by pictures, listening, reading, or any combination thereof! I guess the next phase would be pretending or reenacting too!

    Can’t wait to share this book with my bot-loving boy! Will buy if I don’t win, but keeping my fingers firmly crossed. How cool (nerve-wracking?) to get a critique.
