  1. What a great giveaway!

    So, now to what matters:
    What was your favorite storybook as a child?

    It def. has to be "The Giving Tree" by Shel Silverstein. :)

    Tarsila - Dublin, Ireland

  2. Nice!
    My favorite storybook was "Oliver Twist", I used to saw myself in him so much!
    Merry Christmas!

  3. Brilliant! I'd be glad to be part of the website!

    My favorite Storybook as a child was The Sneetches and other Stories by Dr. Seuss, an absolute classic!

    "...Sneetches got really quite smart on that day,
    The day they decided that Sneetches are Sneetches
    And no kind of Sneetch is the best on the beaches.
    That day, all the Sneetches forgot about stars,
    And whether they had one, or not, upon thars."

  4. My favorite story book was "Go Dogs Go" I love the page where they were all living in the tree house. I always wanted to live there too.

  5. Where the Wild Things Are, for the win!!! Maurice Sendak is a master!! I continue to be impressed with him and inspired to this day!


  6. My favorite book was "A Fish Out of Water" by Helen Palmer. I love how simple things can get soooo out of control.

  7. ah man.... Tarsila Kruse totally took mine! Well, after "The Giving Tree" I would say a little known book called "Hippo Lemonade" by Mike Thaler. The chapter "The Scary Story" is comic genius.

  8. "Stand Back!" said the elephant, "I'm Going to Sneeze" & Hippo on Rollerskates - her whole family couldn't stand her rollerskating all the time. They each took it upon themselves to hide her rollerskates in various places. It was a fun Little Golden Book :)


  9. Richard Scarry's "Busy, Busy World" was my favorite! I loved that book to pieces :)

  10. My favourite book is definately Heidi by Johanna Spyri. When you close ur eyes you can actually really see the gorgeous swiss sceenary and all the characters from the book. Was and still is my fav book of all times :D

  11. I would have to say my favorite book as a kid would be "A Giraffe and A Half" by Shel Silverstein.

    Russ Cox

  12. I've always loved reading kids books and still do even though mine are growing up. One of my favorites as a child was "Little Bunny Follows His Nose". It's a scratch & sniff book that my mom gave me again a few years ago.


  13. What a truly wonderful giveaway! :)
    My favourite is one most may not have heard of, "Pookie", about a little white rabbit with long silky ears.

  14. (Apologies if this is a duplicate post, my first attempt didn't seem to work)

    My favourite children's book was called "Angry Arthur" by Hiawyn Oram, and Satoshi Kitamura.

    My contact link is,

    May the most lucky person win!!


  15. What an awesome opportunity!!!

    My fav's were "Where the wild things are", and "Green eggs and ham"!

    Thanks very much!
    Have a fantastic 2011!

  16. Hmm...for me it was Cinderella, but it wasn't the story so much as it was the illustrations in it, omg...
    they were done by none other than the awesome Edmund Dulac. :))

  17. I think, this is an Awesome sight...!!!

  18. having a little trouble posting this (I'll have another go.....)

    'A Christmas Carol' (closely followed by) 'The Last Battle (Narnia).



    happy new year!

  19. What a wonderful opportunity! Well my favourite book was "the neverending story"" by Micheal Ende! I think it was the first book I managed to read from start to end and i loved every bit of it.
    Wish you a wonderful new year!

  20. A fab opportunity to win an amazing prize.

    My cherished childhood book is The Hungry Caterpillar.

    I loved the colours and the interactive nature.

    Happy New Year everyone


  21. Dr Suess / The Sneetches ... with stars upon thars. Loved the machines that took the stars off and put the stars on. I still have that well worn book from childhood.

  22. My favorite book as a child was "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" by Judith Viorst & Ray Cruz, but my favorite book illustrator as a child, and to this day, is Trina Schart Hyman.

  23. I found my favorite book of fairy tales sitting on the top of a pile of trash waiting to be rescued. It was very old and had been covered with wallpaper. A 1950's version of Grimm's Fairy Tales.

  24. "Little House in the Big Woods" by Laura Ingalls Wilder with Garth Williams' illustrations. I loved the story and the pictures equally.



  25. Great prize! My favorite will always be Busy busy town by Richard Scarry.
