Enter to win a copy of the brand new Prince book!

Hey fam--

We are super happy to announce that the org has partnered with Quarto Books to do a special GIVEAWAY of their newest release, a kids’ book all about our man PRINCE, written by Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara and illustrated by Cachetejack!

lpbd_prince_book_cover.png

The book is the latest in the Little People Big Dreams series and was just released in January. The publisher Quarto was super cool to reach out to us at the org to organize a giveaway of a few copies of the book, and we’re really excited to help share them with some lucky orgers for free! And really, this book is SOOO adorable, it truly does justice to Prince for both young and young at heart alike. We can’t stop flipping through it and enjoying the incredible art style and compelling writing! And like all of the LPBD series, it’s got a very positive message, and highlights the subject’s talents and achievements. For Prince, it’s also got a strong sense of the benefits of being daring, non-conformant, and the importance of never giving up on your dreams. You’re going to absolutely love this one, and it’d make a fantastic gift for any little soon-to-be Prince fan, current Prince fan, or, you know, just anyone smile

So, read below for more info from the publisher, and if you’d like to be entered into the giveaway (heads up: limited to residents of the US, Canada, and UK), fill out THE ENTRY FORM HERE. We’ll collect entries (limit 1 per person) until Feb 14th, and then randomly pick the winners to make their Valentine’s day extra special!

The following is from the publisher...

In this book from the critically acclaimed, multimillion-copy bestselling Little People, BIG DREAMS series, discover the life of Prince, one of the most iconic performers in music history.


From a young age, Prince was obsessed with music. Even though he couldn’t read it, his talent – whether on piano, drums, guitar or vocals – turned him into an icon. Combining funk, disco, soul and almost every other genre out there, his songs are some of the best-loved all around the world. Prince knew that he didn’t have to be like anyone else to be a star – and there was no one quite like Prince.

There are now 50 books in the Little People, BIG DREAMS series – the most recent a biography of Elton John – and the list is growing quickly, Charles Darwin, Stevie Wonder and Malala join the list this Spring.

Katy Flint, Commissioning Editor and Brand Manager for Little People, BIG DREAMS said: “Our Little People, BIG DREAMS books are all about bringing these important figures to life for young children, making them relevant to their own experiences and, most importantly, making reading fun.”


Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara, author of Little People, BIG DREAMS said: “It was such fun to bring the incredible life and work of Prince to life, especially for little people (with big dreams) to enjoy.”

Little People, BIG DREAMS is a best-selling series of books presenting the lives of pioneering figures for young readers. The latest releases are available to buy at www.littlepeoplebigdreams.com

He looks a little off but the series of books are cute and positive. It's nice that his story can be shared with small kids.

Yeah. I heard that the mods are on a salary of 160k each, get a company car, a Corvette and use of Ben’s private island in the Bahamas. All funded by our hefty annual subscriptions and all those damn pop up ads that we keep seeing.

So who won?

Is it me or has this website been on and off for the last week or so?

When do we get the announcement? Also, if you do another book I'd like a shot at doing the cover.

Yeah, I have NOT been able to track down what's causing the org to barf every day lately. I even did a major upgrade which I had hoped would make it "magically" go away (it didn't). But slowly looking for other causes...

anyhow, on to the more important stuff: THE WINNERS!

Today I randomly pulled 10 winners from all the (unique) entrants, and they are... (drum roll please...)

  • Margot
  • Seahorsie
  • purplethunder3121
  • 1nitealone
  • ufoclub
  • Imperfectangel
  • Willow71
  • sexxydancer
  • JudasSmile
  • RydeDyvine

So, those folks should check for an email from me for further instructions on how to receive your book.

BTW, if your email address bounces (i.e., you didn't get an email from me but your username is above) because the one on the org is wrong, you need to orgnote me directly AND update the email on the org here: https://prince.org/prefs/...ml?e=email

If you're having trouble updating your email, we can discuss over orgnote.
