During Picture Book Idea Month (or PiBoIdMo, as those in the know call it), participants are asked to come up with new picture book ideas. One of the best way to come up with picture book ideas is to find inspiration through reading other picture books. Therefore, in honor of  PiBoIdMo, we are doing a picture book giveaway!

Inspiration is an evolving thing, and what we can do with inspiration changes over time as well. So the prize here is actually a set of two autographed picture books: my first, Tightrope Poppy, the High-Wire Pig, and my last (or, at least, my most recent) Pirate Princess. Are you excited? Ready to be inspired? I hope so!

There are several ways to enter:

(1) Leave a comment telling me about the best picture book you’ve read in the last two years (just so every answer ins’t Where the Wild things Are)

(2) follow me on Twitter — mention that in a comment

(3) like my author page on Facebook — mention that in a comment

(4) follow this blog (right sidebar) — mention that in a comment

or (5)  follow fellow blogger Kami Kinard’s Facebook author page — mention that in a comment

So, that’s FIVE ways you can enter to win! Just make sure you tell us in the comments which types of entries you’ve submitted. We will select a winner on November 26 (*) so the contest will remain open until November 25. Good luck to everyone!

* Only entries from the US or Canada are eligible to win the autographed books

    p.s. Kami’s book is in my to read pile, it’s up next!

  4. The Three Ninja Pigs Written by Corey Rosen Schwartz and illustrated by Dan Santat is excellent. The rhyme and the story have drawn me back for many re-readings!!!
    I agree, it’s too hard to pick just one. I have many that I am in love with!

    And last but not least… your books! In fact, Chicks Run Wild is another that has drawn me back for many re-readings. Can’t wait to read Pirate Princess 🙂

  5. Hi Sudipta!

    I actually read both Hampire and Three Ninja Pigs to my TKD students recently…both were a HUGE hit! I have now officially done all five requirements and would do them again if I could…;~)

    Hi Sudipta,
    Thanks for the giveaway :o)
    My favourite book of the last two years is Jonny Duddle’s The Pirates Next Door, my daughter can recite large chunks of it by heart!
    I am now also following you on Twitter @cjfriess

  7. Hi Sudipta,

    Thanks for the give-a-way, Sudipta. Already following you on Twitter & like you & your author page on Facebook. Favorite picture books of the past two years? A very tough call, but the ones that are sticking in my mind are Rocket Writes a Story (Tad Hills), the “sequel” of How Rocket Learned to Read, that just misses the two-year rule (extra entry for honesty?) – love the combination of a dog & literacy support; and Boy & Bot (Ame Dyckman), with its sparse language & incredible Dan Yaccarino illustrations that make Bot so loveable.

    I can hardly wait to read these books. I have lots of favorites, but I really like The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore. The text and illustrations are truly elegant. Definitely something for me to aspire toward. Also re-tweeted and liked on Facebook so I can keep update with you in the future.

    I liked The Boy Who Cried Ninja by Alex Latimer. It wanders right between way out there crazy and totally normal everyday stuff. I found your blog through Opening a Can of Bookworms – I followed blog/twitter/facebook & kami facebook.

  12. My favourite PB in the last two years: A Nation’s Hope by Matt de la Peña and illustrated by Kadir Nelson.
