Wednesdays Win: Mommy Calls Me Monkeypants by J.D. Lester

This is a special Wednesday because we have a second copy of Mommy Calls Me Monkeypants to give away! This is extra fun because we just got a message in from the wonderful J.D. Lester, author of this book. She was having technical difficulties and couldn't post, so Kathy at Random House passed this on to us from her . . .

"Hi Readertotz! I'm JD, the author of "Mommy Calls Me Monkeypants", and I am such a huge fan of your site! I am excited about your book give-away because, interestingly, that's the same day my little monkeypants (my daughter, Scout) will turn 4. I can't wait to show her your site on her bday. Truthfully, she is kind of weary of hearing Monkeypants now since I wrote it when she was just 6 months old -- but, fortunately, she loves the sequel, "Daddy Calls Me Doodlebug", which is going to come out next year from Robin Corey/Random House in time for Father's Day. Please tell all your mom-readers that I love hearing their funny nicknames for their kids, and I feel such a kinship about how goofy we are when it comes to our babies. So, keep reading, moms, dads and everyone with a special little person in your life - and thanks for inspiring us, Readertotz!"

So drop a comment here for a chance to win Mommy Calls Me Monkeypants. Good luck, and don’t forget to check back to see if you’ve won next Wednesday when we'll announce the lucky winner and also post a new contest for yet another book!

Congratulations, Swati! You won Mommy Calls Me Monkeypants in last week's Wednesdays Win! Please send your snailmail address to joanholub at aol dot com

This looks like such a cute little book! Its so funny that her second book, "Daddy Calls me Doodlebug" is named that because I always call my Mom Doodlebug!

How cool of J.D. to stop in! Yay for another copy of Monkeypants. Can't wait to see the next book!

Wow, that is a double bonanza! Not to participate though - just writing in to let you know that I have emailed Joan right now, and thanks, and do I feel lucky! Mine is a hotmail account, so sometimes it does land up in aol's spam - if you don't get it, please could you contact me at www.contactify.com/383df ?
