The Return of the Library Dragon has been a highly anticipated sequel for years, and I’m excited to announce it’s upcoming release in the fall of 2012!  To celebrate Lotta Scales return to libraries everywhere, we’ve decided to have a little contest.
For years, librarians have been telling us how much they love The Library Dragon–so much so that they have created their own Library Dragon costume, which they use every year when introducing the book.  Frankly, we love to see pictures and hear stories about these intrepid story-tellers, and in celebration of your creativity, we have come up with The Library Dragon Contest.

Library Dragon Contest Rules:
(beginning 1/20/12)
  1.  ‘Like’ The Library Dragon on Facebook
  2. Send us a photo or video of yourself in your best Miss Lottie or Lotta Scales costume
  3. Write a paragraph or more describing your relationship with the original Library Dragon book:  when you first learned about it, how you’ve used it, the development of your costume, or any reactions from family, children, and coworkers.  Basically, tell us why you love the Library Dragon and why you deserve to win! 
  4. Post your photo and paragraph on The Library Dragon’s Facebook page, or e-mail it to and we’ll post it for you! 
  5. Entries will be accepted until 12p.m. eastern time October 31st.  Winners will be announced the following week
* by entering the contest, entrants grant Peachtree Publishers permission to display, distribute, or reproduce the entries, in whole or in part, in any media now existing or subsequently developed, for any educational, promotional,  or publicity purposes.
The first prize winner will receive signed first editions of The Library Dragon and The Return of the Library Dragon, The Library Dragon audio CD, a Library Dragon flip-doll, a skype visit with author Carmen Agra Deedy, and a signed piece of original artwork by illustrator Michael P. White!
