My all time favorite Tomi Ungerer book was reissued by Phaidon this past summer. 

The Beast of Monsieur Racine.


So it’s only fitting that this would be my first pick for the Great Holiday Give! 
 (You know, that week before Christmas where I give away new reprints of insanely awesome vintage children’s books?)

My original post on the book from 2010 is here. The new book is here. My interview with Tomi is here. And it’s still not too late to order it in time for Christmas here.

Sooooo without further yadda yadda yadda, I will be giving away one copy of this magically creepy and fabulously wonderful book. To be entered to win a copy, simply comment on this post by 11:59 PM CT Tuesday, December 23. The winner will be announced (along with all the other winners from the week) on Christmas Eve!!!! 
This book was sent to me by the publisher to giveaway, but I don’t think I need to tell you that this in no way educated my opinion of Phaidon, this book and/or the level of pure swank of either. 

The Great Holiday Give will last four more days, so be sure and check back each day to find out about a new vintage reprint and enter to win a different book. Good luck!
