Too Many Visitors for One Little House (Giveaway/Blog Tour/Book Review)

Title: Too Many Visitors for One Little House
Author: Susan Chodakiewitz
Illustrator: Veronica Walsh
Publisher: BookSurge Publishing

My synopsis: This is a cute story about a family who moves into a new neighborhood--where the neighbors don't appear to like kids, pets, or generally anything that might disrupt the status quo. They are always on the lookout for trouble--and they think they see it coming!

A very large RV pulls up in front of the new neighbors house and a myriad of relative proceed to unload. Accompanied by wonderful illustrations depicting all of these relatives, many eccentric, the story rolls along to a satisfying ending of neighbors who aren't really looking for trouble - they are just looking to be included!

My thoughts: This was a very cute book and my 4-year-old has enjoyed me reading it to him. He even reads along when we come to the sentence "Too many visitors for one little house!" The illustrations were adorable--and include a little dog which the author is trying to name. You can visit her on her website to enter the contest to name the dog.

I am also having a contest for one copy of this book, Too Many Visitors For One Little House. Please leave a comment with your email address below to be entered. For an additional entry, visit my interview with the author, Susan Chodakiewitz, and leave another comment relating to the interview in some way ("nice interview" will not count. . .)

I don't know whether this is open internationally or not - will update as I get more info! Added - This giveaway is open internationally - Yeah!

Children's books are the best! I was always curious about how a write and illustrator collaborate on a children's book and I liked Susan Chodakiewitz's back story about how she found the illustrator for this book. The words and illustrations work together to appeal to a child and it looks like there was magic between Susan and Veronica. I look forward to reading this book!

I just removed a prior post by "anonymous" (I like to call them anony-mouse - because they never leave their names) Everyone is entitled to their opinions - but the posts will only be left if they claim them - if you don't believe enough in what you wrote to leave your name - then go post somewhere else.
