Tie up Your Dirigible and Visit for a Spell


L'il Eddie Giveaway

Posted by Lee A. Farruga on April 21, 2014 at 10:00 AM

Last October we backed a Kickstarter campaign for a wonderful new book for kids based on an Edgar Allan Poe story... Yes, I said Edgar Allan Poe!

Author Micah Edwards and artist Tom Brown took The Fall of The House of Usher and turned it into Ricky's Spooky House.

We got a number of books, as demonstrated by my daughter practicing her skills by balancing them on her head...

So talented

Right now I have two of them to give away!  This is a treat for Canadians and members only, whether here or on Facebook. And since most of the time we give away things for adults, this time it's for the kids!

Here's how to enter:

Simply comment below with your favourite Edgar Allan Poe story, AND the name of the child you'll be giving the book to.

You have until next Sunday, April 27th and then we'll randomly pick two winners.

Good luck!!

My daughter would love to start reading this. What a great way to get children started into the world of Steampunk.

My son, Levi (Leviathan), would love to sit in our parlour and hear my read The Raven to him again. Perhaps he could read Ricky's Spooky House to me?

Eureka: a prose poem. Not an easy read but Edgar somehow hinted about the theory of relativity that was later discovered by Einstein. Quite a grand prediction, despite the fact that this poem is a little bit far fetched.

The kid is my grand-son: Victor.

The Tell-Tale Heart is probably my favourite. My son Xander would be the excited recipient of Ricky's Spooky House.

I do enjoy most of Poe's works; however, The Masque of the Red Death would be my favorite.
I have already given my two sons (Valin & Seraph) the Little Master Stoker's Dracula counting book, so something in the way of Poe would be . . ąpropos :)

One of my favorites has always been 'The Purloined Letter'. 'Ricky's Spooky House' would make a lovely gift for my granddaughter...
