A Full Moon Contest!

In celebration of our new book A Full Moon is Rising, we’re having ourselves a little contest! A Full Moon is Rising, by Marilyn Singer and illustrated by Julia Cairns, shows readers how people across the globe celebrate the full moon. Take a peek:

Now we’d love to see how the moon looks from where YOU live! Snap a photo of the moon and send it to photos@leeandlow.com by September 15, 2011. Our judges will pick their favorite, and the winner will receive two signed copies of A Full Moon is Rising – one for you, and one for your local school or library.

The next full moon is September 12, so get those cameras ready!

[contest open to entrants with US mailing addresses only]




Congratulations to the winner, Jacob of Bellingham, WA! See the winning photo below, and don’t forget to look up!
