Hotel Bruce Book Birthday and Prize Pack GIVEAWAY!

Minor update: For anyone that is checking back because they wondered "what the heck" when entering the giveaway. Initially I had the option for commenting on the blog post as another entry into the giveaway and only now just realized that I had turned off the commenting option on my blog posts... Everyone has their dumb moments, right? So now that option is completely off the books; sincerest apologies for the confusion. The giveaway will keep going as planned!

My favorite lovably grumpy bear is here! Yep, Hotel Bruce is on sale today and I hope you are all excited about it. If you haven't already got yourself a copy, I guess I can forgive you, because you are in the right place. Thanks to Disney-Hyperion, I have a prize pack to share with you that includes a copy of the book AND a pretty dang cute "Wipe Your Paws" welcome mat. Oh, yeah! Enter using the Rafflecopter widget below. If you still have no idea what I'm talking about, check out my review of the book back here, and then read on, MacDuff!


Hotel Bruce
Ryan T. Higgins

Date of publication: October 18th, 2016 (Happy Book Birthday!!)Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Age: 3-6

"When Bruce gets home from a southern migration trip with his goslings, he is tired. He is grumpy. And he is definitely not in the mood to share his home with the trio of mice who have turned his den into a hotel.

"There's a possum pillow fight wreaking havoc in one room, a fox luring guests into a stew in the kitchen, and a snuggly crew of critters hogging the bed. Bruce growls and grumbles and tries to throw them all out, but the entrepreneurial mice just can't take a hint. Bruce is in a little over his head, especially once the goslings join the staff. Will this grumpy bear ever get his quiet, peaceful den back to himself?"

It's the illustrations that totally get my goat. Bruce's expressions are especially hilarious. Check out some of these pages:


Ryan T. Higgins (ryanthiggins.com) is the author/illustrator of Mother Bruce. He does NOT live with four geese, but he and his family do live with a tortoise and a menagerie of other pets. At one time or another, Ryan has been friends with a porcupine, a raccoon, a beaver, dozens of mice, and a couple of squirrels, but he has never found a moose in his bed. He always peeks under the covers, though.
