Yep, it's giveaway time again!

This time, I'm giving away a little pair of books that would be a great gift for the young or young-at-heart in your life. They were both kindly donated by Workman Publishing, who other than being top-notch at publishing fun and offbeat kids items, are also high in the promotional package ranking. When a Workman box comes in, it's all grabby hands and exclamations.


Up for grabs: Rufus Seder's "Scanimation" titles Gallop and Wallop. For those of you who aren't familiar, "Scanimation" is an animated book page. As you flip through the book, the pictures on the page move in near continuous flow. Both Gallop and Waddle are about the way animals move, so there is a moving animal to accompany the text.

It's kind of hard to explain. How about Mr. Seder explains his craft:

Clear things up? Basically these books are really, really neat, and super fun to read to children.

How to win this awesome pair? Simple:
1. Enter by December 10th
2. Enter by leaving a comment on this post with your email and the answer to this question: If you could be any animal (other than human) what would you be and why.

Okay, you only have until December 10th, so enter now!

As to the question at hand, I'd be a domesticated bear. Like being a dog, but with better perks.

No need to enter me, doll. Which is good; I have no idea what I'd be.

I'm dropping in to say thanks for the e-mail. I've got this posted at Win a Book for you.

If I could be an animal other than a human I would be a pegasus (many young childhood dreams of flying there). Of course if we have to be realistic about it I'd choose to be a cat. They're smart and they get to lay around all day.

I think I'd be a dog - loved by most, treated like a human in many houses, sleep whenever I want, get excited so easily by anything. Generally, a happy and relaxing life!

I'd be a cat, particularly MY cat, because she has such a pelasant life.

I would love to me an Eagle. I want to fly and I would be a symbol of this great country.

Ooo, I love these books. I've seen Swing! before and thought it was very cool. :0) I bet my niece would enjoy them, too.

I think I'd want to be some kind of a bird. Then I could fly without being scared of falling.

I would want to be a cat. That way I can stay warm and cozy for hours at a time without anyone bugging me. Thanks for the contest!
