Who'd like my copy of this Newbery Medal winner?

Let's make this quick because I know you need this book. I'll draw tomorrow, so let me know by 7 AM, April 28th, EDT.

“Reading should not be presented to children as a chore or a duty. It should be offered to them as a precious gift."

And the winner is...
