Enter to WIN these 2 BOOKS!

Barney Saltzberg, acclaimed author and illustrator of nearly 50 books for children, will headline the two-day Festival. Saltzberg will present “Beautiful Oops!,” his award-winning tale about turning mistakes into something beautiful, as well as his latest book, “Chengdu Could Not, Would Not Fall Asleep,” the story of a young panda who cannot fall asleep, inspired by the Chengdu Research Base in China.

Fairytale Town has generously offered a pair of Barney’s books – Beautiful Oops! and Chengdu Could Not, Would Not Fall Asleep for one lucky reader! The winner will be able to pick up the books at Fairytale Town the weekend of the Festival.


Go to the list of children’s books the authors will be presenting and leave a comment below letting me know which book you think your kids would love to hear at the festival. (Don’t worry if your comment doesn’t post right away, it is going through a spam filter first.)

One entry per person. The giveaway will close on Tuesday, September 23rd at midnight and the winner will be announced Wednesday. Good Luck!
