Where’s Walrus? (Giveaway)

 

I adore children’s books. Even though my kids are not so little anymore and are reading things that I don’t find “cute”, I still have a soft spot in my heart for children’s books. I have a really nice collection to share with my own grandchildren some day as well as when I am babysitting. I love reading stories to children. It’s fun to get “animated” when you read them and change your voice to match the characters in the book.

There is a new picture book available from acclaimed illustrator Stephen Savage called Where’s Walrus? It looks adorable! I haven’t read the book, yet, but I am expecting a review copy any day now. 

Check out the trailer for the book by CLICKING HERE. The URL is very long. It’s easier for me to just link it up. Walrus is so cute!

Here is a brief description about the book;

Bored with life at the zoo, an adventurous walrus escapes to the outside world. With the zookeeper in hot pursuit, Walrus cleverly tries on all sorts of hats to disguise himself. Will a yellow hardhat point to a new life as a construction worker? Or will a red swimming cap reveal his true talents? Follow the happy-go-lucky runaway as he hides amongst firefighters, businessmen, and even high-stepping dancers in this delightful wordless picture book.

It sounds to me like this book is similar to a “hide and seek” kind of story where the reader needs to find Walrus who is trying to hide from the Zoo Keeper. I’m thinking Where’s Waldo but with an adorable Walrus instead of Waldo.

The author, Stephen Savage, is the illustrator of the acclaimed New York Times bestselling picture book Polar Bear Night. His editorial illustrations have appeared in dozens of major newspapers and magazines including the New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Atlantic Monthly, The New Republic and The Wall Street Journal. When Stephen is not on the run, he lives in Brooklyn, New York, with his wife and daughter.

You can learn more about Steve Savage on his official website, http://www.stephensavage.net. He also has a blog, http://stephensavageillustration.blogspot.com. You can even keep up with the book’s promotion on a special Facebook page dedicated to the book (CLICK HERE).

It looks like a cute book and I can’t wait to check it out for myself. The book was released on February 1, 2011 and is available where many books are sold including Barnes & Noble and Amazon.

I have THREE copies of Where’s Walrus that I can give away to three lucky winners (each winner gets one copy).
