It's finally feeling like fall around here, and Leave Me Alone is out so soon! September 13th, mere days away, holy moly. It's been getting really nice reviews including starred ones from Publisher's Weekly and The School Library Journal. This one by Betsy Bird is especially nice! I blushed. I'm so excited for you guys to see this book, I loved making it and it's so fun to read aloud to kids too. Or lazy grownups.
If you would like your own copy you can pre-order from one of these lovely outlets:
And once you have pre-ordered, you could be in the running to win an ORIGINAL PAINTING FROM THE BOOK.
One of these three paintings! You get to pick which one, even. All you have to do is send a photo or screencap of your pre-order receipt to LeavemeAloneGiveaway@gmail.com before September 13th. It's cool if you pre-ordered it before I started the contest. I will pick a name out at random and send the painting of your choice your way. Easy!
There are also four runner-up prizes, little paintings of the grandkids from the book wearing their cute sweaters and enjoying autumn harvests. I will pick which one you get but they are all pretty good I think!
And if you happen to live in Portland, I'm having a release party on September 18th, here's some info about that. I would love to see you!
