Hotel Bruce and a Giveaway

hotelbruce

by Ryan T. Higgins (Disney, 2016)

I’m excited to bring you a fun giveaway from Disney Books to celebrate this week’s release of Hotel Bruce. Thanks to Disney for sending me the book, and for providing a prize pack to pass on to you.

Here’s what the publisher has to say about Hotel Bruce:

When Bruce gets home from a southern migration trip with his goslings, he is tired. He is grumpy. And he is definitely not in the mood to share his home with the trio of mice who have turned his den into a hotel.

There’s a possum pillow fight wreaking havoc in one room, a fox luring guests into a stew in the kitchen, and a snuggly crew of critters hogging the bed. Bruce growls and grumbles and tries to throw them all out, but the entrepreneurial mice just can’t take a hint. Bruce is in a little over his head, especially once the goslings join the staff. Will this grumpy bear ever get his quiet, peaceful den back to himself?

That’s a copy of Hotel Bruce and an adorable mat to remind your welcome (and unwelcome!) guests to wipe their paws.

Ryan T. Higgins (ryanthiggins.com) is the author/illustrator of Mother Bruce. He does NOT live with four geese, but he and his family do live with a tortoise and a menagerie of other pets. At one time or another, Ryan has been friends with a porcupine, a raccoon, a beaver, dozens of mice, and a couple of squirrels, but he has never found a moose in his bed. He always peeks under the covers, though.

Good luck!

    Looks like another winner! I originally put a hold on Mother Bruce at the library but when I went to pick it up, it was nowhere to be found because the librarians had confiscated it for their own reading pleasure! Can’t wait to turn them on to this one! Love the humor and details in the gorgeous illustrations. Thanks for sharing.
