Think You Know Your Picture Books?

So, I finally have over 100 followers! Thank you, my friends. I am writing a guest post over at Heather Kephart's PB&J Blog (Picture Books & Jolliness) today. But first, check out this awesome contest, just for you guys! Two winners, chosen randomly, will each win a copy of a MARKET GUIDE. One winner will receive the Book Markets for Children's Writers 2011. And the second winner will receive the Book Markets for Children's Writers 2010. It has books only, no magazines. From early picture books to middle grade, to YA. From fiction to nonfiction. Includes a few articles that are very helpful. 2011 edition has a list of agents.

All you have to do is list as many of the books below as you can. I can name 29. Can anyone beat me? Don't worry if you only know three. You can still win the 2010 book. Just comment below with the list of books you recognize. Whoever names the MOST gets the 2011 book. The 2010 book will be chosen randomly from all other commenters. Two entries for "old" followers, prior to this post. And one entry for new followers. Contest runs for 10 days and ends on November 15th. (No cheating...hee-hee...) Good luck!

Ready...set...go!!! 



Remember to come back tomorrow to read my interview with Tara Lazar...
