Book Giveaway Carnival - Weebeasts



The Weebeasts are a species of naked, pot-bellied, yellow creatures discovered by Micah Linton, who has taken it upon himself to document their history. In Weebeastology: Volume I (a three-volume set, plus poster), their history is documented...with no words at all! It is up to the reader to supply the story from the vivid, distinctive illustrations. In Weebeasts: Plight, a children's picture book, Linton tells the story of the Weebeasts' search for a new home after their bad behavior has them exiled.

Weebeastology is great set for reluctant readers, challenged readers, or children who just like to make up stories. I loved this idea--get children interested in reading by engaging them first in telling stories. The pictures-only format is also a fun way to explore story arcs and structure in a clear, enjoyable way. Weebeasts: Plight had the same vivid illustrations, but with a simple story and a nice lesson (be a good neighbor). Some opposites are thrown in to show the ups and downs of the journey.

We have TWO sets of Weebeasts prizes to win for Book Giveaway Carnival! Each winner will receive the three-volume Weebeastology set, Weebeasts: Plight, AND a plushy Weebeast. To enter, simply leave a comment on the post between now and 6:00 pm Eastern time on Friday, March 6!

I always appreciate finding others who are concerned about helping children become readers.

That's because I grew up as a reluctant reader. And my father was the author of over 70 books. Now I write action-adventure and mystery books especially for tween boys. My blog, Books for boys, http://booksandboys.blogspot.com is # 4 on Google today.

Keep up your good work!

Awww shucks missed the giveaway..but that is how it goes. just wanted to pop in say what a neat idea I think the books are. It allows the readers (children) come up with their own story of how it goes. Imagination rules. Thank you.
