The Wild Swans Giveaway Winner

Times’s up! Pencils down . . . er, fingers off the keyboard.

Last week we chatted with Jackie Morris and Ivy about Jackie’s new book, The Wild Swans, and about the writing life, painting, knitting, modeling, and more. If you missed it, you should check it out: It was awesome!

Jackie’s publisher, Frances Lincoln Children’s Books, offered to send one of our readers a copy of The Wild Swans, so we held a contest, and today I consulted the Random Number Generator to select a winner.

And the winner is . . .

Congratulations, Jeannette! I’ll be in touch via email to get your mailing addy.

Thanks to everyone who came and read, and special thanks to everyone who left a comment to participate in the giveaway.

Queen of the Sky, by Jackie Morris

Queen of the Sky

I recently read Jackie’s book, Queen of the Sky. It’s a true story about Ffion Rees, a friend of Jackie’s, who rescues and rehabilitates a peregrine falcon. What a fascinating and heartwarming story! And what a beautiful book, too, chock-full of color photographs and Jackie’s paintings. Put this on your holiday gift list for natural history enthusiasts of any age. It would be a great family read-aloud.
