I am so delighted to announce that for today’s Giveaway, award-winning, super-cool, yellow-bike-riding, illustrator John Segal will send the winner an AUTOGRAPHED COPY OF HIS CHILDREN’S BOOK: CARROT SOUP!!!

Written and illustrated by the talented Mr. Segal.
Take one rabbit, patiently growing carrots. Add his friends — Mole, Dog, Cat, Duck, and Pig. Mix all ingredients together for a superdelicious surprise! The Society of Illustrators has selected Carrot Soup as one of it’s outstanding illustrated books of the year.

John Segal has an excellent website where you can see more of his really terrific work, read reviews of his books and see how his talents also include design and editorial illustrations.

Earlier, for one of my Book of the Week posts, I featured this lovely tale. It’s one of my — and my children’s — favorite books. You can read my post here.
