One of my readers won the children’s book Starring Lorenzo, And Einstein Too from Penguin Young Readers. The author, Mark Karlins, was excited to read your comments about this giveaway and had a message he wanted me to share with you:
“As the writer of Starring Lorenzo, And Einstein Too, I thoroughly enjoyed reading your comments. Similar to many of you, I also love humorous books — and not only my own, of course. Recently I’ve been reading Starring Lorenzo, And Einstein Too at various schools and bookstores. I can’t tell you how much fun it’s been to see a large group of children laughing at various lines in the book they all seem to love the thought of Lorenzo as a baby dreaming that he is flying towards the moon. But I can tell that they also appreciate the serious message of the story that it is important to follow your dreams, that your imagination is central to who you are, and that each of us will be accepted for who we are. But best of all, I must say, is to read Lorenzo and see the faces of those smiling children.
My thanks to you all.”
How do you know if you won? I just share the winner’s first name here, but I sent the winner an email with the subject line “You Won Starring Lorenzo book on Freebies 4 Mom”. I need to receive a response from the winner within 48 hours of the email that I send them. If I don’t hear from a winner within that time frame, I will draw a new winner.
