Many thanks to all who participated in the Little Elliot BIG HOLIDAY GIVEAWAY! People were asked to share what their favorite small treasure is. Our winner, chosen at random, is Marcilia Loubach Tartaglia of Littleton, Mass. She wrote:
“My favorite small treasure is my childhood stuffed blue bunny I used to carry around everywhere with me. It was a gift from my aunt and when we left Brazil to come to America it was my security blanket through all the chaos that was coming to a new country. Even after many beheadings to remove the stuffing from it so that my grandmother could wash her clean, and re-stitchings, she is still with me til this very day. Hopefully I can pass her on to my own children in the future.”
I was delighted that Marcilia won because this was definitely one of my favorite entries! Marcilia will receive a first edition signed copy of Little Elliot, Big City!
