Just a quick reminder that Sunday is your last day to enter the giveaway for autographed copy of The Green Teen Cookbook by commenting over here on my recommendation for this yummy title.
After these chilly nights in Moscow for #IASL2014, my fellow school librarians and I are ready to warm up with some Chicken Noodle Soup with Cheese Muffins like Roscoe shows in the book. Does your weather have you longing for hot food or for cool treats?
See y’all Stateside soon, and I’ll rev up the Randomizer and see which comment number comes out as the winner!
The People’s Book Prize winner Green Teen Cookbook: Recipes for All Seasons has finally arrived in the USA, filled with luscious food photography and refreshed with measurements in tablespoons, cups, and quarts.
Also named the Best Sustainable Food Book in the UK, this cookbook features over 70 teen-created recipes, plus articles about key issues from eating seasonally to maintaining a vegetarian lifestyle.
GIVEAWAY! Zest Books will send one lucky BooksYALove reader (US addresses only, please) an autographed copy of The Green Teen Cookbook since I joined their blog tour for this title. Of course, y’all know that I wouldn’t post a recommendation here if I didn’t love the book!

Max and Rufus send purring thanks to all who entered the giveaway for Kimberly Pauley’s new book Cat Girl’s Day Off. They put all the entries into the Random Sequence Generator, which whirred and replied: —>
So comment number 8 from Jacqui is our winner! Your ARC of Cat Girl’s Day Off will be sent directly from Tu Books once you reply to the email from Max and Rufus.
If you’ve read my recommendation of Cat Girl’s Day Off, by Kimberly Pauley, then you know that Rufus Brutus the Third is a feline force to be reckoned with – even if he has been dyed pink for Breast Cancer Awareness.
My cat Max (pictured at right) chatted with Rufus (see him on the book cover below). They decided to give one lucky BooksYALove reader an Advance Reader’s Copy of the book, so follow their instructions to enter the giveaway!
Max: You went through a lot in Chicago to find your person. Was it worth it? Rufus: My person and I are an inseparable team – I inspire her writing, you know. Max: Yeah, I help my person write by staying nearby, just in case she needs to pet me. And there’s a dog in your life, right? Rufus: Oh, Fergie! I’ve had hairballs bigger than his wee little brain, but if he makes Easton happy, I’ll put up with him. The imposter [snarl!] was terribly mean to Fergie, but took out most of her anger against me. Max: Chasing you with hairspray and perfume? What an awful person! Rufus: And the things she did to other humans, like my Easton… [snarrrrlll] don’t get me started! Max: Did you enjoy getting to meet other cats, despite the circumstances? Rufus: It’s enlightening to travel, my person always says, and she’s right. If we’d stayed in Hollywood, how would I ever have run into Meep or PD or Queenie or Nat, the cat-fluent person? Maybe she’ll be able to convince my Easton to stop calling me Tiddlywinks and use my real name! Max: Would you ever visit a school again, I mean, after all that craziness with the movie people? Rufus: Certainly not! Their facilities for felines are definitely sub-par!
Max: So here’s how readers can enter to win an Advance Reader’s Copy of Cat Girl’s Day Off. Rufus: But they have to give us their word of honor that they won’t try to sell it! ARCs may NOT be sold! Max: Exactly, but the winner can share the ARC with other readers. Rufus: The giveaway is open to readers 13 years and older, with a US mailing address, since Tu Books will ship the ARC directly to the winner. Max: And only 1 entry per human, to make it fair. Rufus: To avoid those awful, awful spammers, write your e-mail address in the comments like this: RufusBrutusTheThird AT EastonWest DOT com. Max: We’ll take entries through 11:59 p.m. EDT on Monday, April 9th. I’ll be up then. Will you be up, Rufus? Rufus: Undoubtedly! Hollywood was made for late-night cats like me. Max: Then all the entries will go in the Randomizer to choose 1 winner. My person will e-mail the winner who must reply to her with their US mailing address by Monday, April 16, 2012. Rufus: You DO want to get your paws on my heroic tale of bravery as soon as possible, don’t you?? Max: Just for fun, add the color of your favorite cat, too. Rufus: So my person would put “pink” – seems a funny name for such a boring color.* Max: Good luck, everyone, and remember that your cat knows a lot more than he or she is telling you! —– *Cats can’t distinguish reds from greens and browns because they don’t have cones in their retinas.
