CoCo Levine Cupcake Queen Giveaway

Posted by on Oct 7, 2011 in Giveaways | 17 comments

Coco Levine is a new book for kids that’s part storybook, part recipe book. Do crafts with your children as you read along!

CoCo Levine lives in a shimmery, glimmery cupcake and sips a delightful blend of dewdrop nectar. Her next-door neighbor, Larry Contrary lives in a rusty toaster, slurps toilet water tea and spends most of his time driving CoCo crazy. The two of them have absolutely nothing in common. But, as it turns out, that’s a very good thing. A very good thing, indeed. When it comes to whipping up the coolest crafts and tastiest treats around, two heads are always better than one. Whether it’s cupcake pops and pom pom flowers or pickled frogs and swamp slime, the recipes and crafts inside this book will help you whip up hours of sweet and silly fun!

    I loved the narnia series. My mum used to read them to us and it sounded delicious to eat Turkish delight and drink hot chocolate outin the snow!

  2. Sara

    I was obsessed with One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss. Even today, it is my favorite.

    Definitely Dr. Seuss. His books are seriously works of genius

  6. JavelinWarrior

    I love the blurb about CoCo Levine and Larry Contrary! That’s awesome.
    My favorite book when I was young was The Rats of NYMPH. Who’d ever think that rats could be so lovable, brave and worthy of admiration?

  7. Natalia

    I loved “Once upon a time”, a compilation of such funny tales. I especially liked “The vain little mouse”

  8. Andrea

    The Sea People by Jorg Muller. Relevant then, even more relevant now!

    Happy memories of being read the Alfie and Annie Rose stories at bedtime Definitely stories I’ll be reading to my own children!

    My favorite childhood storybook was Le Petit Prince (The Little Prince) by Antoine de Saint-Exupery. Classic book that I still read every few years and still find things to marvel about.
    Thanks for the giveaway and have fun on your vacation!!!
