Winning Big And A Thought-Provoking Question!

Well, really, there's no better way to start a Monday than with prizes, is there?  So let's get right to it!

I'm afraid I love games and contests more than you guys do.  Sigh.  Out of all my lovely and devoted followers, only two (that's 2!) submitted entries for the Guess The Children's Picture Book Contest celebrating Read Across America.  I confess, I was disappointed.  But not in my two contestants.  In fact, given their stellar responses and the fact that they were the only two to step up to the plate, I have decided to give BOTH of them a copy of April Fool, Phyllis!

So the winners are: Teri and Cindy!!!  * Round of loud applause and wild cheering! *  Congratulations on your superior knowledge of children's picture books!  Please use the "email me" button on the right hand side of the blog to let me know how you would like your book signed, and the address to which you would like it mailed!  Many thanks for participating!  (And for those of you who are curious about what the books were, please scroll down and check out Teri and Cindy's answers to the Read Across America and A Prize post from Wednesday March 2.)

I am going to have a few more copies of April Fool, Phyllis! to give away, so maybe you guys better chime in and tell me what kinds of games/contests you would participate in.  It's more fun if more people join in :)

And now, in the interest of a story I'm pondering, here is the thought-provoking question of the day:

Would you rather be forced to tell your best friend a lie, or tell your parents the truth?  (Oh, and I should mention you are a 12 year old girl :))  What is your reasoning?  (And for Monty Python fans, what is your favorite color? :))

Looking forward to your thoughts!


  1. I think as a 12-year-old girl I would rather tell my parents the truth. Friends are my world, and I wouldn't want to risk losing my best friend. Plus, I don't have any deep dark secrets that I need to keep from my parents... yet.
    My favorite color is violet; but since I'm not too close of a follower of Monty Python, I probably missed the reference. Teri

  2. I think as a twelve year old, I'd rather tell my parents the truth, mostly because I hate to lie. I've had people lie to me and it only made me feel bad. I can't imagine inflicting that on my friend.

    Also, blue.

    No, wait...

  3. Ah, a Python fan :)

    I agree with you both about preferring to tell the truth to my parents than lie to a friend, but I thought maybe that was because that's how I am, not how every 12 year old girl would be.... thanks!

  4. Well, my 12 year old self probably would have chosen to tell my parents the truth. I am/was horrible at lying.

  5. Wow! I'm thrilled an excited to discover I've won the first line contest!!!
    Very cool. Thanks so much. I can't wait to hold APRIL FOOL, PHYLLIS! in my hands--and that's no fooling!


I love to hear from you and try to respond to every comment. Please share your thoughts!
