Chicken Spaghetti's Fourth Anniversary
Spotted at the Post Office

Book Giveaway: "Chicken Butt!"

Chickenbuttcov How fitting. It's just plain old serendipity when Chicken Spaghetti has the opportunity to offer one lucky reader a Chicken Butt! of his or her own.

It's a book—a funny new picture book—written by Erica S. Perl and illustrated by Henry Cole. The trade journal Kirkus calls it "an unhinged piece of slap-happy rhyming." 

I also got a kick out of the school librarian at 100 Scope Notes who asks, "How do you feel about a raucous storytime? Are you pro or con? Cause that’s what you’re going to have if you pull this one out during read-aloud."

Oh, yeah.

I'm so happy that the publication and blog tour coincided with Chicken Spaghetti's fourth anniversary. 

To enter the giveaway contest, leave your name in the comments, and later this afternoon (around 5 p.m.) I will enlist the help of my two backyard hens in choosing a winner.

I can't wait to read this one. My kids and I are suckers for anything with "butt" in the title.

I'd like to be considered for the giveaway. My 7-year-old granddaughter Lily is a voracious reader.

I love a good contest. And who can resist a book called Chicken Butt.
