Giveaway: Week 1 Winner and Week 2 Prize

Mermaid: A Twist on the Classic Tale 

Congrats to Mari, entry #33 chosen by, who won a copy of The Mermaid by Carolyn Turgeon. I've sent you an email Mari requesting your mailing address!

This week's giveaway is a copy of New Orleans Museum of Art: Dreams Come True: Art of the Classic Fairy Tales from the Walt Disney Studio. This is the exhibit book from the special exhibit in New Orleans in 2009/10 that coincided with the release of The Frog Princess. It is about the artwork behind the Disney fairy tale films and is a rare book. I picked up a few copies during my trip to NOMA in December and plan to give away two in total in the coming weeks. I thought a Disney related giveaway would be appropriate this week in conjunction with the Tangled DVD/Blu-ray release. Ironic since Tangled is the only film not covered in the book.

The opening quote in the book is:

So far I've only posted the contest here on the blog where we get 10% of the daily traffic that the SurLaLune main site receives. That means there are less contest entries, but I will be adding it to the main site soon.

“It has always been my hope that our fairytale films will result in a desire of viewers to read again the fine, old original tales and enchanting myths on the home bookshelf or school library...” - Walter Elias Disney
