GIVEAWAY: You Can Win A Kate Beaton “The Princess and the Pony” Prize Pack!

Kate Beaton has been one of my favorite writers and artists for a long time. In fact, her webcomic Hark! A Vagrant was the first webcomic I ever read, sparking a passion that eventually led to me writing my weekly column Drawn to Comics. I’m guessing that a lot of you are big Beaton fans as well and would absolutely love to win a prize pack for her brand new picture book The Princess and the Pony!

The Princess and the Pony is Beaton’s first ever picture book, and it tells the story of Princess Pinecone, who wants a noble steed befitting a warrior princess like her for her birthday. What she gets isn’t quite what she expected, but she learns that, in the end, maybe that’s a good thing. Plus, this is one of the few children’s books that stars a mixed-race princess of color. Let me tell you, this book is funny, absolutely adorable and perfect for readers of all ages.

Sounds awesome, right? So, if you’d like to win a free copy of this book, plus a great pony mug and stylish pony t-shirt, all you have to do is enter this contest!


Prizing and samples provided by Scholastic.
