Lawrence in the Fall by Matthew Farina
& Doug Salati (Illustrator)
[Release Day Blitz + Giveaway]

I haven't had a chance to read Lawrence in the Fall, but it's one I'm really looking forward to! We enjoy books with fox characters, and love searching for them at the library. It might have something to do with our love of Fantastic Mr. Fox. If you haven't heard of the book (Roald Dahl) or seen the movie (directed by Wes Anderson), I highly recommend both!

This blitz also includes a giveaway for 3 finished copies of the book, US Only, courtesy of Disney-Hyperion and Rockstar Book Tours. So if you’d like a chance to win, enter in the Rafflecopter at the bottom of this post!

Author: Matthew Farina, Doug Salati (Illustrator)

When Lawrence Fox's teacher announces that students will be presenting their collections at show-and-tell, Lawrence realizes he doesn't have anything to share.

Luckily, Papa knows just what to do to help! Together, they venture into the woods. Lawrence is scared at first, but as he grows comfortable in the forest, he starts to recognize its magic, and how beautiful and unique each tree and leaf is, allowing him to gather a splendid, one-of-a-kind collection of his own!
