A Contest of Wild Sorts


Congratulations to the Winner! sharon martinez, on September 20th, 2008 at 5:51 pm Said:

“strong wind, torrential rain
Hurricane in the Gulf
Fall in florida

Thank you for the contest”


You asked for it, and now, you can get it.  Your very own copy of Where the Wild Things Are…And 5 More Stories by Maurice Sendak DVD from Scholastic Storybook Treasures™.

The book comes to life in the animated adaptation of the storybook classic.  In a room full of kiddos ages <1 to 13 years, the older ones found it entertaining.  The subtitles highlight as the story is read to encourage read-along fun.

The 5 other film shorts were not as detailed in artistic quality–in fact the technology was decades older than the title piece.  But, they’re entertaining enough for younger kids who aren’t yet jaded by the animated special effects available in most of of today’s films.  There are songs performed by diva Carole King which sound dated compared to today’s music, but it IS music and it IS singing which kids love.

Personally, I could give or take the 5 extra features, but the title feature is worthwhile.  Major craft bonus is that the DVD comes with incredibly detailed stickers inspired by illustrations from Where the Wild Things Are…And 5 More Stories by Maurice Sendak.

You can purchase your own copy of Where the Wild Things Are…And 5 More Stories by Maurice Sendak DVD online . . . OR you can try to win your very own copy here on TWB by leaving a comment in haiku format about what you love most about autumn.  You must keep to true haiku syllabic form in order to be eligible.

Only one comment per person.  Multiple entries will be deleted.  The contest for Where the Wild Things Are DVD ends at 11:59 PM (EST) on Friday, September 26th. The winner will be announced on Saturday, September 27th.

The winner for each prize and 2 alternates will be selected on Random.org and announced on this post. If you provide your e-mail address, I will contact you. The winner has 72 hours to claim the prize, otherwise, the prize goes to the first alternate to contact me with a shipping address.
