Kids and Teen Blog
Every month, readers across the country enter the newsletter contest to win new books published by Raincoast's client publishers. I love getting feedback on the books I send and today I received an email from Pat in Waterloo, Ontario, winner of the February draw for Bart King's The Big Book of Gross Stuff (which Siobhan blogged about last week). He said:
I am now convinced that putting the word "FART" in any book will get boys to read.
Dion [Pat's 8-year-old] has barely put the book down, and has read to me the same sections at least two or three times with a laugh that brings a smile to all parents' faces." The Big Book of Gross Stuff "has brought a lot of laughter into our house over the weekend and it has a little boy reading it over and over."
Lucky Pat will get to fully enjoy the bounty of Bart's latest book on Wednesday; apparently Dion is creating a gift of fake vomit using Cheez Whiz and green food colouring. Happy birthday, Dad! Can you say ewwww?
If you'd like to learn more about Raincoast's latest offerings, and take a chance at winning some cool (and gross!) books, sign up for the Kids' Book newsletter.
