  1. I love cats! I'm always suspicious! I do time travel...Okay, maybe that last one isn't true. (wink) I already have a copy of Time Cat, so please keep my name out of the drawing...

    I'm on my way to check out your interview....

  2. Well, I've not read this book so I'd definitely be interested in reading it. The cats name is Gareth and the time I would be most interested in is America 1775 because I think it would be an exciting place the year before our independence.

    Sounds like a fun read. Cat's name is Gareth. I'd like to travel to Ancient Egypt. Because I think it would be fascinating.

  7. Hi, guys! Thanks for stopping by and for spreading the word. Good luck to you!

    The place I would most like to visit would probably be Italy in 1468 because I would like to see all the great art (and Leonardo de Vinci as a child). I would take my sister with me. She's an artist: www.juliecrews.com

    P.S. You don't need to give your e-mail here. If you win, I'll twitter you. I'll also post the winner on my blog on November 1st (as well as post here in the comments).
