To make up for my inexcusable negligence of June (read: totally flaking on picking three winners to receive beautiful ARC's of LIESL AND PO), I've selected SIX winners, below! Congratulations, guys. I'll be writing you soon for addresses so I can pop those puppies in the mail. For the rest of you, please remember that I'll be giving away another three ARC's in both August and September as we gear up for the release date, so keep the faith alive, go on, and keep entering! And congrats again to our month's WINNERS:
Misty: I have gone through a lot of book phases, even as a kid, but there were a few that remained constant:
as a young kid, I was obsessed with The Velveteen Rabbit. I mean obsessed, too, that's not an exaggeration.
As I got a little older, they were almost all classics, especially Oliver Twist, Little Men and Anne of Green Gables, all of which still hold a special place in my heart (especially Anne).
Darcus: I didn't have a single favorite novel from when I was a child, but I was insanely in love with the Fear Street novels by R.L. Stine. Especially the Fear Street Saga, which told how everything began, basically. I still have some of those books and I will always remember cracking into a pile that I had just checked out from the library. Whether it was Goosebumps or Fear Street, R.L. Stine will forever be a part of my childhood and I only hope that someday my children will have an author like that for them.
The BFG by Roald Dahl was my favorite book as a little kid. To this day, it remains my all time favorite childrens book. I have since passed it down to my kids who also enjoy it :) [Ed note: Matilda's my fave, Tiffany, but I love BFG too!]
I am going to be unoriginal, and say that my favorite book as a child is the Harry Potter series. :)
My favourite book would have to be the Magic Tree House by Mary Pope Osborne.
Molly (a dazzling distraction):
It's hard to choose a favorite book from childhood, because I read ALL the time...but I guess The Witches by Roald Dahl, Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell, and Witch Hunt by Wendi Corsi Staub are probably up there...they are certainly the most worn out from re-reading them!
