We at the Team Redd household have been anticipating the release of this book for years. Ever since Andrew Peterson first shared with us a short story he had written about children's fingers magically walking down the stairs in the middle of the night while they we sleeping, we hoped that one day Andrew would become a published author. (It sounds gruesome, but it was really imaginative all the same!)

So, when we were given the chance to review his new book and give one away on our blog, we jumped at the chance.

And now it's time to announce the first ever Team Redd Giveaway!

Win it!
We have one copy of Andrew Peterson's book On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkess to send to a lucky reader!

All you have to do is post a comment, ONE comment only (no cheating please!), on this post and then we will put all the entries in a random number generator to find the winner!

It sounds easy ... too easy. So, I decided to make it a little more, um, interesting. In order to properly enter the contest, you must write a limerick about either Andrew Peterson or another fantasy author that you enjoy! Don't worry, the winner will still be picked randmonly, it's just that if we have to look through a bazillion comments I'd at least like them to be funny.

Also, be sure to include a working e-mail address where you can be contacted if you win. Comments will close Thursday night, March 20th, at midnight. The winner will be picked by random number generator and announced on this blog Friday morning! So come back to see if you've won!

Andrew Peterson writes limericks. You, too, can be like AP.

Don't worry, I've decided to start you off with a limerick of my own.

An old pirate named Podo from Skree?
Toothy cows and a girl named Leeli?
Surely you jest!
No, it's only the best
A new book by the famous AP!

See, that wasn't so bad, was it? (Heh. It's horrible, I know! So make yours better! We may even post some of the most amusing ones on our blog.)
