We recently posted a review of Huck: The Remarkable True Story of How One Lost Puppy Taught a Family – and a Whole Town – About Hope and Happy Endings by Janet Elder. I gave Huck our highest rating as a read, Highly Recommended. This one is so good that David Letterman said, “You’ll feel better about everything after you read this.”
Now, thanks to the publisher (Broadway Books), we have three (3) copies of Huck to give away to our readers. This trade paperback is 301 pages long – with a new Afterward – and has a retail value of $15.00. We’re also adding two additional copies of Huck that we picked up, and a hard-to-find pre-publication galley (Advance Review Copy) that we located; the latter version runs 295 pages in length. So, if Sasha the kitten is right – she’s counting on her paws – we’ll have not 1, 2, 3 or even 5 winners, but six (6) winners in this contest!
To enter this giveaway, tell us why you would like to win a copy of this particular story. This is open-book, so feel free to read or re-read the review (“The Pick of the Litter”) that I posted on this site on October 30, 2011; and/or any other reviews or information that you can locate on the internet. Post your response as a comment below including an e-mail address where you can be contacted, or send your reply as an e-mail to: Josephsreviews@gmail.com . This will count as a first entry.
For a second entry, tell us about the most important or unique animal you’ve encountered in your life. This can be an animal that you or your family owned, or one that was owned by a neighbor, or even one that you visited in a zoo. What did you learn from this animal? Again, you can post your response below or submit it as an e-mail message. In order to be eligible to enter and win this contest, you must live in the continental United States or Canada and be able to supply a residential (street) address if contacted. Books will not be shipped to a P. O. box or business-related address. You have until 12:00 p.m./midnight on Tuesday, December 20, 2011 to submit your entry or entries. However, the winners may be selected and notified before then depending on the quality of the entries received – so don’t delay!
This is it for the “complex” contest rules. Let’s hope that you’re one of the readers that will soon be adding a copy of Huck: The Remarkable Story of… One Lost Puppy to your library!
