Clementine Monkey Princess- GIVEAWAY! ***CLOSED***

"Clementine is a happy little girl who is blessed with a special talent: she can climb anything.  Lynden, the king of the monkeys, wants to crown her his Monkey Princess.  The monkeys whisk her away from the safety of her home to the wilds of the Jungle of Flim.  Her two brothers set out, with the help of their dad, to save her..."  (

Alright, so it turns out that story-telling runs in the family.  My Aunt Nora and Uncle Adam have teamed up to write this fantastic story!

I purchased this book and read it to my son and realized 2 great things I love about the book!
1)  The illustrations!  The characters are lovable, the details are amazing and the scenes are easy to relate to.  I wish I could open the book for you so you could see detail in King Lynden's jungle throne, or the expression on Dad's face when Clementine climbs the fridge!
2)  The story!  This story has per-son-ality!  I am rolling on my sides when Leonard, in effort to save his friend's life, offers the old crocodile a fishing pole.  Leonard argues that fish are tasty and easy to catch but Pressington, the monkey, just wouldn't be good without ketchup!

My son (3 yrs) was drawn into this tale about a young girl who loved to climb (don't all kids love to climb?) and he really enjoyed the pictures of the charismatic elephants and the intriguing old croc.  I, too, enjoyed the illustrations and loved the clever details in the writing.

So!  We have a signed copy of the book that we'd like to give-away to one of our readers.  You can have up to 2 entries in this give-away.  Here's how to enter:

1st entry- Make a comment on this post.
2nd entry- Invite a friend to come have a look at this post.  
(And leave a second comment to let me know you did this.)

That's it!  Easy-peasy!  


The giveaway will close one week from today (Thursday, August 12th) at 12pm PDT and we will announce a winner on Saturday (August 14th).  Check back next Saturday to see if you won or leave a contact address in your comment.

Love to all!
