Want a FREE book?


I have an extra copy of A NEW JOB FOR DILLY that I would like to give away. For those who don't know, Dilly is a little rat who loves sour pickles. He enjoys going through the alphabet when he's looking for something, which in this case, is a job so he can get pickles without stealing. However, Dilly is a little absent minded and tends to forget a letter every now and then.

I thought it would be fun to have a contest for a free copy. To be entered in the drawing, all you have to do is leave me a comment here on my blog between now and November 30th. Simply list one of your favorite books as a child and why you liked it. That's all you have to do. I'll pick a winner and post it on December 1st in order to get the book to you in time.

Please feel free to enter if you have the book already. It would make a perfect present for a child on your list this Christmas. You can't beat the price -- free. Don't forget that A NEW FRIEND FOR DILLY is also available now. 4RV Publishing, LLC is having a Christmas sale through December 5th and all of the books are available for a reduced price. Please check them out!

  1. Oooh, my nephew would love this (and, truth be told, so would I – I used to have pet rats).

    I used to love (and still do) everything Dr Seuss did, particularly Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? He had a sort of sensible nonsense which was so appealing.

  2. Rena, I would love to win a copy of A New Job for Dilly. It's sad (especially since I write PBs)but I really don't remember books that I read as a child. I do remember getting a huge book once that was filled with different stories, poems and fairy tales and such. Wish I still had it.

  3. And who wouldn't love a free book? My favorite was the Wizard of Oz - the entire series. Those stories carried me away, when I was reading them - I wasn't in Portland any more :)

  6. Mine was The Pokey Little Puppy which I'm sure my mom read to me a hundred times. It was our time together.

    My favorites were Dr Seuss and Go Dog Go. I also liked the Horton Books and Encyclopedia Brown. If I won it, I'd give it to the needy. After all Christmas is the time of giving.

  8. Mine would be ANYTHING Sesame Street: The Monster at the End of This Book, Cookie Monster and the Cookie Tree, Sesame Street Presents the Four Seasons (weather-type seasons, not the music group LOL!) The best one would either be Big Bird's Red Book, but probably Cookie Tree. Cookie has ALWAYS been my favorite, and it teaches kids a great lesson about sharing!

  15. My favorite book was "The Story of Babar." I even still have the book after 40-some years!
    I'm a teacher for Head Start and I know my kids would love to hear a new book. Especially Dilly!

  17. Hi Rena! One of my favorite books as a kid was Trixie Beldon The Black Jacket Mystery. I loved the strong characters and active writing style. :)

  18. aww that is very sweet Rena.. I know you will think I am crazy but I never really had involved parents in my life so reading wasnt really a factor in my life.. When I would go to the library I would check out mystery books.. I am different with my kids.. I make sure I get them involved and learning to read.. We read all kinds of books..

  19. I was 'forced' to read one of my holiday favorites tonight: The Sweet Smells of Christmas. My original copy is at home with mom and dad, but I had to buy the reprint years ago. My son and I both love the scratch-and-sniff pages that smell exactly the same as they did 30 years ago!!
