Contest: The Little Rascals Save the Day

In the spirit of the treasured Our Gang comedies, The Little Rascals Save the Day finds the most entertaining bunch of third graders in town hatching a series of madcap schemes to earn enough money to keep Grandma’s (Doris Roberts of “Everybody Loves Raymond”) bakery out of the clutches of conniving businessman Big Ray (Greg Germann of Here Comes the Boom). From caddying to pet care to taxi service, each of their plans goes hilariously awry until they are left with just two options: find a way to win the local talent show or wave goodbye to the best cupcakes a kid ever tasted!

I have copies to give away!  Send me an email with Rascals in the subject line and tell me about some mischief you or a child in your life stirred up.  Don’t forget your address!  (US addresses only)  I’ll pick a winner on April 1.  Good luck!
