And now onto today's main event...we're giving away THREE SIGNED COPIES of LET'S HAVE A BITE: A BANQUET OF BEASTLY FEASTS, by one of Overlook's favorite authors, Robert L. Forbes. It's illustrated by legendary artist Ronald Searle, and the whimsical drawings make Mr. Forbes' delightful rhymes come to life. One lucky winner will also receive a signed poster!

Here's an example of one of our favorite poems.

Flick the fly
Is no nice guy,
A huge but tiny pest.
He'll buzz my head
Until he's fed —
Never giving me a rest.

And one of our favorite illustrations (not with that poem!)

This book is geared towards children ages 4-8, but the rhymes and drawings can be appreciated by anyone young at heart!
