Star Wars Books Giveaway

It’s contest time again! I have not just one but TWO very cool new Star Wars books to give away to one lucky reader thanks to the super awesome book-loving people at Scholastic Canada: Star Wars: A Galactic Pop-up Adventure (with a working lightsaber!) and Star Wars Folded Flyers (with 30 paper starfighters!) The value of this giveaway is over $60.00. Here are pics of the book covers:

Star Wars: A Galactic Pop-up Adventure is by master paper engineer Matthew Reinhart. True Star Wars fans will appreciate the incredible attention to detail paid to each of these dazzling pop-ups, and book lovers of any kind will be amazed by the intricacy of the art. I love a book that has it’s own trailer, click here to see it in all it’s pop-up glory.

The Star Wars Folded Flyers activity book by Ben Harper and the scientists of Klutz labs includes the stuff you need to make 30 folded flyers. Jedi Starfighters, Naboo N-1 Starfighters, the Millennium Falcon- they’re all here waiting to be folded and flown. My dear husband volunteered to make a Jedi Starfighter (I really had to twist his arm.) Here it is taking a brief rest before continuing it’s plunge down the stairs:

To enter, just leave a comment here (with your e-mail address) by Thursday December 13th at noon telling me who you would give these books to if you won (or if you would keep them for yourself!) The lucky winner will be announced on Friday. This contest is for Canadian addresses only. And if you are now inspired to finish your Christmas shopping with books, get some ideas from our friends at Scholastic on their Facebook page or follow them on Twitter, they tweet fun stuff. Good luck!

  1. I would give these to my 7 year old daughter’s best “boy” friend – they went to daycare together as babies and he’s a couple of year older than her. She’s best friends with his sister and he’s so nice to both of them!

  2. Thanks for the shout out on the paper plane making. I must say the plane flies amazingly well. Our son made me throw it about a thousand times today!

  3. Our dude Simon would love the pop ups, but mostly the light saber…every day he walks around wanting to be Darth Vader so it is clear that he has already gone over to the Dark Side

  4. My son has been..umm…gently pushed into liking Star Wars. The good news is, he actually DOES like it a lot.
    He’d love either/or of those books.
    Great giveaway Rosie!

  5. Hi Rosie,
    Found my way here from T.O. Mike’s blog.
    I would give them to my 5 year old son, who loves books and Star Wars.
    Proud Papa Moment – he is in SK and reads at a Grade 2-3 level.

  6. I would give them to my son for sure. He would love them. We were just talking about starwars today. He still loves Yoda lol.

  7. I would be the best uncle a nephew could have if I won this prize! Thanks for the chance Rosie, heard the contest on your Podcast with that other host who’s name I can’t seem to recall. Ok that is just shameless shilling on my part.

  8. And the winner of the Star Wars Books giveaway is…
    519 Rob!
    Congrats Rob, I have sent you an e-mail.
    Thank you all so much for entering! Rosie 🙂
