BIG BOUFFANT — An Awesome Giveaway!

For you loyal readers who remember, I made a book trailer for a darling picture book at the end of last year, and now, in celebration of the release, the super-sweet author has offered up a copy of the finished book for a giveaway!

BIG BOUFFANT by Kate Hosford, illustrated by Holly Clifton-Brown (Carolrhoda Books, April 2011)

Trust me when I tell you, this book is beyond cute! It's perfect for those young girls in your life who adore FANCY NANCY, AMERICAN GIRL, or dressing up.

Here's the trailer I was honored to make!

From Amazon:

"Ponytails and braids! Ponytails and braids! I don't see anything but ponytails and braids! This class needs some fashion. This class needs some fun. I'll find a hairdo to impress everyone." Annabelle doesn't want the same boring hairstyle that all the other girls have. When she spies a picture of her grandma, she has the perfect idea: a big bouffant! But how can she make her style stand up? And will her classmates really be impressed with her daring `do?
