Phew! We finally have three winners in the Abigail Spells book giveaway!

There was a bit of a kerfuffle over picking the winners, as usual. But it wasn’t about who was going to draw the names. All the bears in the house (upwards of 300), read the book, and voted unanimously to keep Abigail Spells in the house.

That’s right. They simply can’t bear to part with any of the three copies they’ve been circulating amongst themselves. So, I had to resort instead to a highly scientific method:


R-A-N-D-O-M  N-U-M-B-E-R  G-E-N-E-R-A-T-O-R!

And now, *drum roll, please*, I will spell out the winners and their favorite words:


Jeannine Atkins!


Mrs. Mommy!


Young Jen!

Congratulations, Jeannine, Mrs. Mommy, and Young Jen!! Please send me your snail mail addresses: readermail (at) jamakimrattigan (dot com).

  1. Oh, Jama, thank you! I’ll send my snail mail address. But, you know, no hurry with that many bears who want to read.

    And I feel kind of bad that the person who spelled ratatouille didn’t win. I had to look at that word four times to get it right.


  2. Congratulations, Jeannine! Ratatouille is very tricky. I’m still not sure I copied it correctly. It’s one of those words that looks even more wrong the longer you stare at it. 🙂

    Don’t worry about the bears. They’ll be picnicking soon, and will be more obsessed with eating than reading . . .


  3. I’m so happy Abigail will go to three great homes! LOVE those cupcakes…
