posted by Nell Minow

I’m thrilled to have two copies of Chicken Little & More Zany Animal Stories to give away.  Scholastic’s wonderful series always has the best in children’s literature, gently animated and beautifully read.  This latest in the series includes:

CHICKEN LITTLE (Written and illustrated by Rebecca Emberley and Ed Emberley, narrated by Walter Mayes) A bold and colorful retelling of a classic tale! Children will delight as a crazy-eyed chicken and all his panicked friends try to run away from a falling sky.

THE GREAT WHITE MAN-EATING SHARK (Written by Margaret Mahy, illustrated by Jonathan Allen) Norvin, a boy who closely resembles a shark, uses his talents to scare away all the swimmers at Caramel Cove except for the one female shark in love. Help!

THE THREE-LEGGED CAT (Written by Margaret Mahy, illustrated by Jonathan Allen) Mrs. Gimble’s peg-leg cat, Tom, is taken for a hat and a ride atop her rascally roving brother’s bald head in this hilarious tale of mistaken identity.

DOOBY DOOBY MOO (Written by Doreen Cronin, illustrated by Betsy Lewin, narrated by Randy Travis) While Farmer Brown tries to figure out what the animals are up to, Duck is determined to enter the talent show contest and win!

 

To enter: Send me an email at moviemom@moviemom.com with Chicken Little in the subject line and tell me about your favorite hat (I hope it wasn’t a three-legged cat!).  Don’t forget your address!  (US addresses only.)  I will pick a winner on July 1, 2012.  Good luck!
