Tillie Lays an Egg Giveaway

I was coerced asked nicely by the lovely Suzanne at the Chickens in the Road site to provide a book for a blog giveaway. You have until Sunday, Oct. 31, to enter. No, you don’t have to be in costume, but if you do dress up (for the giveaway, or for Halloween) I’d love to hear about it! This is the first year that I will not be helping a son make a costume. Teenaged boys don’t dress up. I’ll have a passel of thirteen-year olds in the basement watching as many Alien movies as they can in an evening. The teenager who can drive is avoiding the younger kids, and going off to a friend’s house where they’ll also watch movies. I’ve been told that it’ll be mortifying if I wear a costume, and although it’s part of the parents’ contract to embarrass your children, I’ve promised not to. Sigh. I will, however, leave my husband at home and spend some time on the porch of our little town’s one and only store, watching the festivities. (There’s a lot of dark streets and  long scary driveways, so the little children go to the town center to trick or treat. Even the police station gives out candy.) I might even put on my google-eyed alien headband.

Meanwhile, do get over to Suzanne’s blog. I can’t wait to hear where Tillie Lays an Egg ends up!


  1. I purchased “Tillie Lays an Egg” this spring for my 4 year old grandson. He loves it. I just visited Suzanne’s blog and there are over 150 entries to win a copy! I hope your presence there will bring you more blog visitors, and more “TIllie” sales. Thanks for all your great info, for sharing Little Pond Farm with us, and for your generous giveaway!

  2. Hi Terry…I thought you would get a giggle out of my costume today..we have to be a book “character”…I have flesh colored clothes on and a pair of boys white underwear and a red cape…Can you guess who I am? Very popular books in the library..they are NEVER on the shelf!
