Special Give-Away for Cottonmouth and the End!

Earlier this week I wrote about three books in the Cottonmouth Series (Cottonmouth and the RiverCottonmouth and the Great GiftCottonmouth and the End and if you read my reviews, you likely ended up thinking I really, really liked these books! Which is true; I think these are three books every family should get and read through together - and talk about! Wrapped in the "guise" of children's books, these are far more than just books for children. They are an adventure, a journey, filled with discovery, challenge, difficulty and joy. Yes, joy!

The Cottonmouth series is more, far, far more than just books for children because while they are "tagged" as being for children ages eight to twelve, they are in actuality for all of us. These books have illustrations which are amazing, unique and which powerfully contribute to the story and help communicate in a way which pulls you in to the story. And, most importantly, the story has a true message - Jesus gave Himself for us, did not leave us comfortless and has something important for us to do!

These books are nothing short of amazing and since they are written with cliffhangers - which since all three are available, you will not have to wait any longer than it takes to open the next book and begin reading to pick up the adventure and discover what happens next!

I announced an amazing give-away by David C. Cook (the publisher) where you could win an original, signed artwork from the book and a drawn-in copy of Cottonmouth and the End. I have to say, these are awesome prizes! If you have not yet entered the drawing for these incredible prizes, stop reading right now and look to the right side of grandma's cookie jar for the Rafflecopter entry box and enter!!!!

There, now you have entered to win those amazing prizes, I'm happy to announce I'm also giving away one copy of Cottonmouth and the End! Hooray!!! I loved this book and sincerely believe you - and your grandchildren/children will love it, too!
