Perfect Picture Book Fridays Are Back! - With A Giveaway! - Little Miss Muffet

Let the joyous news be spread!

Perfect Picture Book Fridays are back!!

And we're starting off with tons of fun!!!  A great book and a giveaway!

Today, I am thrilled to be sharing this hot-off-the-presses new book from the one and only Iza Trapani!

Title: Little Miss Muffet
Written & Illustrated By: Iza Trapani
Sky Pony Press, September 10, 2013, Fiction

Suitable For Ages: 3-7

Themes/Topics: bravery, positional and directional words

Opening:
"Little Miss Muffet
Sat on a tuffet
Eating her curds and whey.
Along came a spider
Who sat down beside her
And frightened Miss Muffet away.

All through the room,
She zipped and she zoomed
And looked for a place to hide.
A mouse came to find her;
It scurried behind her.
The dainty Miss bolted outside."

Brief Synopsis:  Poor Miss Muffet is frightened by a spider.  But as she rushes to find a place to hide, she's frightened by a mouse!  Running from the mouse she is frightened by a frog!  No matter where she runs, she seems to find something to be afraid of.  What is the poor girl to do?

Just for fun, here's an interior page:)

Links To Resources:  Iza has created many wonderful resources for this book which I'm sure will be available soon on her website, but for now you can get them my emailing her at iza[at]izatrapani[dot]com and asking for them.  (I had hoped to include them here, but blogger won't allow uploads of PDFs!  I will refrain from sharing my feelings about blogger since this is a kid-friendly blog :))  The resources include a Miss Muffet Coloring Page, a Miss Muffet Hidden Animals challenge, a Miss Muffet Maze, and a page that allows you to make bookmarks.  The book also includes many positional and directional words which makes it excellent for preschool!  Please enjoy the book trailer HERE.  And Iza writes a wonderful blog which you can visit HERE.

Why I Like This Book: If you haven't had the pleasure of reading Iza's books, I can't recommend them highly enough.  Most of them are based on familiar, beloved songs - the kind all children and parents love to sing together - including Twinkle Twinkle Little StarBaa Baa Black SheepRow Row Row Your BoatI'm A Little TeapotJingle Bells,  Itsy Bitsy Spider (celebrating it's 20th anniversary this year having sold over a million copies!) and many more.  Iza takes the basic verses and spins them into delightful, original stories that are a joy to read (and sing :)) aloud.  Her accompanying art is warm and inviting, a safe-haven for young children, full of comfort, perfect for bedtime or anytime.  Miss Muffet is another brilliant addition to her list and a must-have!

If you'd care to purchase a copy, here is a helpful link: Amazon link: http://www.amazon.com/Little-Miss-Muffet-Iza-Trapani/dp/1620879867/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1378415299&sr=1-1&keywords=little+miss+muffet

For the complete list of books with resources, please visit Perfect Picture Books.

Today, since we are celebrating the release of Iza's book, she has been kind enough to offer a signed copy as a giveaway!!!  One lucky commenter is going to be a winner :)  All you have to do to qualify is leave a comment in which you share your choice of the following things:

1. Name something that YOU are very afraid of!
2. Tell us your favorite Iza Trapani title and why you love it!
3. If you're feeling writerly and inspired, write your own verse of Miss Muffet in which she is afraid of something besides the traditional spider!

You may do one of them or all of them, whatever you like!

Please leave your comment by Sunday September 15 at 5 PM EDT.  At that time, a winner will be selected randomly by random.org.  The winner will be announced Monday along with a very special post!  Which you'll just have to wonder about.  All weekend :)

    I like Ms. Trapani's "Itsy Bitsy Spider" book because it's so cute! I actually found a copy of it in the doctor's office! Great PPB Ms. Hill! I like the idea of Ms. Muffet getting scared by everything! The illustrations are beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  8. And thanks for the kind comments, friends! Good luck!

  9. Yay! PPBF is back!

    I don't know Iza but many of my PB writer friends do and I know how talented she is by their praises! This looks like a super fun book. Congratulations to Iza on its publication!!

    As for me, I'm deathly afraid of heights. :P

    Happy Friday!

  10. So nice to be back! I miss all the great PPBF posts and connections over the summer. Don't put my name in the hat because I am buying my own copy, but I like to participate in writerly thigs!

    Along came a snake,
    Who sat up for cake,
    To celebrate Roald Dahl's birthday.

  11. Congratulations to Iza! I have a couple of her books that I used w/my kids and in my teaching years. I'm afraid of all things buggy, including spiders!

    ReplyDelete
  12. "Lil Miss Muffett" sounds so cute! Love those illustrations!


    I am afraid of failing. and spiders. and rejection. Many things. I guess I am a fraidy Kat! :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Three cheers for Iza and her many accomplishments. I do feel bad for poor Miss Muffet. Seems she can't catch a break from being frightened.


    I'm a more than a little afraid of snakes and that is all I can say before I faint just imagining their slithering forms. Eek!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Little Miss Muffet, with her big chicken puppet. Decided to conquer her fears. Outside by a tree, they saw wasps - there were three! Some things are just scary, my dear!


    Oh, Susanna - thanks for bringing PPBFs back and for a wonderful giveaway. Miss Muffet looks adorable and I'm eager to learn more about this author.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yay, we're back. *waves at the gang*, now it feels like this writing season is really under way. I am so glad you reviewed MISS MUFFET, Susanna, I was hoping somebody might!


    Rejection is my big fear and THE BEAR WENT OVER THE MOUNTAIN is my favorite Iza book thus far!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Hurray for Iza! I love her books. Looking forward to reading this one. I am afraid of failing. If only it weren't so easy to do. :) Wow, I was afraid to hit post, so I just read below, and it appears I'm not alone! Who knew!

    ReplyDelete
  17. YaY Iza!!!!!!!!!!!!! Woo woo woo!! I can't wait to get my copy so I can review it over at my place. The illustrations are just magnificent! The kidlets will feel like they're right in the book. Huzzah Iza! Fantastical review Sus!



    So glad PPBF is back too. YaYYYYYYYYY!!!!


    P.S. Blogger stinketh!

  18. Congratulations to Iza on her new book! Hi Susanna, I am afraid to fly, which is pretty strange since my father, father-in-law, and brother-in-law are all pilots. My father's favorite calming statement to me: "You are statistically safer in an airplane than in your bathtub."

  20. Hi Susanna - so glad PPBF is back! and what a fun review of Miss Muffet. I love spiders - but am afraid of ticks! And while I love bumblebees, I am afraid of yellow jackets - the kind that nest in the ground and you don't see them until you rototill their nest - then ya gotta run fast (and they can fly 13 mph & I can't run that fast!)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hi everyone! So happy PPBF is back!! Missed you all. Can't wait to read Iza's new book! My hands down favorite is I'm a Little Teapot. We have it in our church nursery and the kids love it. (Also I performed it when I was 5.... and I still know all the moves!)

    ReplyDelete
  22. I don't like picking favorite titles, Susanna, that can feel a bit like picking a favorite child! So then, what am I afraid of? Creepy crawlies don't generally bother me. I can trap and remove spiders, lizards whatever. I AM afraid of falling (from heights) and failing. So it's the two F's for me.
    Looking forward to reading everyone else's PPBFs!

    ReplyDelete
  23. So pleased to see a another knew book from Iza. I am afraid of snakes. Don't even like them in movies. For now I'll have to say The Bear Went Over the Mountain -- it was such a colorful, warm and inviting book. What I like most about her books are the songs that accompany the stories. It disturbs me today to hear young children singing pop/rock songs, when they should be singing age-appropriate songs. Her fun books are ones that I love to give as gifts to parents with young children. Also love How Much is that Doggie in the Window -- brings back memories of my singing the song as a child.

    ReplyDelete
  24. So glad PPBF is back!
    Congratulations on your latest release Iza! Sounds delightful and full of laughs.
    I am scared of snakes. I love her books for her splendid rhyme!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yay for PPBF! Can't wait to read your choice, Susanna. I love new versions of classics. If I were Miss Muffet, I would discover that my tuffet was up in tree. I'm afraid of heights.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oops! I forgot to write my PPBF post. This will be my reminder for next week. . .
    I, too, am scared to death of big spiders, and large tropical centipedes, one of which fell on me when I was a missionary in Papua New Guinea years ago!
    I am not familiar with Iza's books. . .thanks for the introduction. They are charming!

    ReplyDelete
  27. This looks pretty clever. I am afraid of rejection! Not a good quality for a writer. Please let someone else win. I have so many books there is no more room at the bookcase.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yay for the return of Perfect Picture Book Friday! I LOVE Iza's books but hadn't heard of Miss Muffet yet, so I'm glad you made this selection. My favorite of Iza's books is Froggy Went A-Courtin because I loved that song as a child, and because it was one of the first books I bought for my daughter when she was a baby. So we've been reading Iza's adorable version for a long time now. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  29. I know! Itsy Bitsy Spider came out the year my daughter was born and we read the covers off it :) I love Iza's books!

    ReplyDelete
  30. No YOU are the best :) I was very glad to do it! You know how much I love your work :)

  31. Itsy Bitsy Spider has a special place in my heart too, Erik, because it's the first of Ms. Trapani's I ever read, and it came out the year my daughter was born and we read it over and over and over! :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hahaha :) I hope someone else picks this up and keeps going :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. That is why God made you petite then, Teresa :) Happy Friday to you too! :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Well rejection is very hard to deal with, Rosi, and you're brave to share your fear. I think in this crowd you are not alone!!! :)

  36. I do not LOVE bugs, but I'm not really afraid of them. I just think they're gross. Except I like ladybugs :) Thanks for joining in :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Then you are braver than most for facing those fears and trying anyway, Clar! :) I'm noticing a theme in the fears people are listing though... a lot of people don't like bugs or rejection!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I hear you, Angela! And I hate how people say you don't have to worry unless their head is triangular because that means poison. Well, I can imagine ANY snake's head looks triangular!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. You will love her, Barbara! She is all-around terrific! And thanks for your fabulous rhyming lines - I love them! :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. I know it, Joanna! I'm so happy to see everyone here today - it's like old home week :) Thanks for sharing your fear (that's a popular one today!) and your favorite Iza title. I do love the painting in the bear book - so lush and beautiful :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I notice we have a fear theme going here: almost everyone has said falling, rejection, or bugs/spiders!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Blogger doth stinketh! I agree completely! And it is messing up my website headers and making me cranky. Someday I'm going to have a website and blog that go together and look professional like everyone else's!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Hahahahaha! That is so funny, Teri! Next time you have to go somewhere, make sure you don't travel by bathtub :)

  45. Amen to that, Sue! I live in a very bad tick area where we now have a new tick-borne disease to be afraid of that is fatal in 30% of cases - NOT FUN and I'm afraid of ticks too for that reason! As for yellow jackets in the ground, I once ran over a nest with the lawn mower... you should have seen me racing across the lawn discarding clothing as I tried to get them out from under my shirt after that incident :)

  46. Hi Laura!!! So glad to see you! I was thinking of you yesterday and going to send you an email, which I still plan to do...! Now then. I expect a video of you performing I'm A Little Teapot as soon as humanly possible!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. So diplomatic, Wendy :) As for your fears, I am so interested in the fact that almost everyone has posted the same 4 fears. I think we could present evidence at a psychological research party or something. I'm waiting for someone to confess to a wildly different fear than failing, falling, bugs, or rejection! :)

  48. I know, Pat. Iza's books are all so wonderful, aren't they? To me they are the epitome of what picture books should be! Loved your choice for today though! I'm really not sure if we have anything else on the list on that topic!

  49. It is fun having everyone together again today, isn't it? And I agree - Iza is a master of rhyme!

  51. Oh, Jarm! If you haven't read Iza's books you are in for a treat! I think you will love them! And I must say... I do not think I like the sound of a "large tropical centipede"!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I hate spiders, too, so I can identify with Little Miss Muffet!!!

    ReplyDelete
  53. "Away ran the spider, his heart all filled with fright..."

    ReplyDelete
  54. SO glad PPBF is back (although I can't participate except by reading people's posts until next week, because I'm too busy promoting Erik's new book on my blog this week!!!!)


    Hmmm... I'm trying to think of a fear I have that hasn't already been mentioned in the 56 comments that have gone before me. (I have lots, but they've all gone and hidden under the bed, afraid I'll mention them.) Scary books and movies REALLY scare me. I won't read 'em or watch 'em. I had to be strongly cajoled to watch the first Harry Potter movie.

  55. Hahaha, Beth! A twist on who's afraid of who! I love it :)

  56. I'm so glad PPBF is back too! It's so great to see everyone :) And yay for you having a fear no one's mentioned yet! :) When I was in college my roommate dared me to watch The Shining! Of course I did it because it was a dare. I will let you know if I ever recover :)

  62. drat! I missed PPBF as I so excitedly prepared for the blog tour of Erik's new book. I actually posted it early due to it being already the date down here...oops! Loved your choice of book and unfortunately I'm very much a miss muffet. Anything moves, has more than two legs and I'm off! I'll be here next week for sure... See ya!

  65. LOL! But maybe if I were 6' 2", I'd get over my fear of heights?

    ReplyDelete
  66. Maybe :) Or maybe you'd just do yourself an injury fainting from that height :)

    ReplyDelete
  67. Oh Susanna...I am so happy to see Iza's latest book being plugged. Iza is soooooo talented. Of course, I would like a chance of being chosen to receive a "signed" copy. I'm deathly afraid of being locked in an underground parking stairwell...again. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  68. I know - Iza is amazing, isn't she? But you, Tracy, win the prize for most original fear on this page! :) That sounds like a story I need to hear :)

  69. I am very afraid of the dark under the stairs, especially if they are open stairs. *shivers* Even if they aren't open, I STILL run up the stairs after turning off the light. And I'm not 5 anymore :)

    ReplyDelete
  70. I don't write rhyme, but I thought I'd try it for fun. To those of you who do write rhyme, my apologies. :-)

    Little Miss Muffet
    Stood on her tuffet
    Trimming a bright red rose.
    Along clopped a lobster
    Who plopped down beside her.
    It snipped and it snapped at her toes.

    Eek! cried Miss Muffet.
    She leaped off her tuffet
    And dashed across the thick lawn.
    The lobster gave chase
    But found not a trace.
    The agile Miss Muffet was gone.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Well, you just never know what could be down there, Lauri! I recommend getting a dog :)

    ReplyDelete
  72. Thank you, Susanna! It really was fun to give rhyming a try. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  73. If this was your first try, I'm impressed! :)

    ReplyDelete
  74. Thank you, Susanna. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  75. Well, I've been gone for the weekend and looks like I'm late for the party! and you folks sure know how to party!! Unfortunately I haven't read any of Ms Trapani's books! How could that have happened?! They all sound like tons of fun. I'm going to have to get my readers on the ball!! The only thing that comes to mind that I'm afraid of is ssssssnake ssskins! I've only seen an actual snake in a glass box. But I encounter those skins around here quite a lot. Eeeewww!

    ReplyDelete
  76. If you haven't read Iza's books you're in for a treat Rhythm! I think you'll especially like Oh Where Oh Where Has My Little Dog Gone, How Much Is That Doggie In The Window and Rufus and Friends School Days and Rhyme TIme :) And I have to agree... I don't like sssssssnake ssssssskins :)

    ReplyDelete
  77. I had a look at her website and there are sooooo many to choose from! Where to begin?! I'll start with the library! And see which ones they have! Can't wait!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Oh, yay for Iza! The illustrations look gorgeous. There seems to be a lot of good new going around lately... Some for you too, Suzanne! I used to be afraid of spiders but not any more. Now with four young children, I'm more afraid of someone catching the flu or riding his bike without a helmet... those kinds of things. :)

    ReplyDelete
  79. Excellent, Cheryl! I love the clopping, snipping, snapping lobster!

    ReplyDelete
  80. How lucky you are not to be afraid of creepy crawlies!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Thanks, Joanna! Rejection is a valid fear, but in the publishing world we need to have a thick skin and keep in mind it is one (or a few) person's opinion and not a reflection on us personally.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Thanks, Hannah! Yours are valid fears- not silly phobias!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Yes, Rhythm, please get your readers on the ball! :-) I often have dogs in my books :-)
    Sssssnake ssskins- yuk!

    ReplyDelete
  84. Haha! I laugh, but I know what you mean!

    Thanks so much!

    ReplyDelete
  94. Haha, Laura! That could be a funny version of the Muffet rhyme! This just came to me:
    Little Miss Muffet , sat on a tuffet
    Eating her curds and whey.
    Along came a squirrel
    Who frightened the girl
    And it carried her tuffet away. (up the tree! :-))

    ReplyDelete
  95. Thanks, Darshana! No snakes in this book :-)

    ReplyDelete
  96. Thank you so much, Patricia! And don't worry- no snakes in this book!

    ReplyDelete
  97. Thank you, Laura! May I join Susanna in seeing you do the moves?

    ReplyDelete
  98. I agree, Sue! Having been bitten by deer ticks and treated for early Lymes this summer (and last)- ticks are a valid fear indeed. And yellow jacket stings are so painful...wish we could outrun them!

    ReplyDelete
  99. Thank you Teri! I am afraid to fly to, though I do it fairly frequently. It's never fun, but I will have to think of your father's calming statement next time. Good one!

  108. Thank you, Teresa! Well, I guess I won't take you rock climbing then :-)

  109. Erik, thank you so much! And I so look forward to reading your book! Bravo to you! You are something else!

  110. Thank you, my friend!

  111. Thank you Catherine! Uh oh, Susanna is trying to scare us with spiders!

    ReplyDelete
  112. So Catherine took a bath
    Then slept calmly through the night.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Those really sound awful, Vivian- though I am not familiar with them, nor do I have a desire to do so!
    Thanks so much for the kind words!

  114. Haha, beth! I love the frightened fears hiding under the bed! And I also can't watch scary movies. Those scenes stay with me for a lifetime...

I think it's The Day The Crayons Quit - which is very clever and funny and I think you'll enjoy it if you get a chance to read it :)
