Hey, fellow bookworms!
Looking for some more reading for those hot summer days in the hammock (or rainy summer nights on the couch, as the case may be)?
I've got a bounty of new books on offer - free to the first person who emails me in each instance.
Here's what's on offer:
* Mister Got To Go, Where are you?: This kids' picture book, aimed at ages four and up, is a new "tail" in the Mister Got To Go series, from author Lois Simmie and illustrator Cynthia Nugent.
* A Woodpecker's Tale: This kids' picture book, aimed at ages four and up, is the newest addition to the Tell Me More Storybook series of books, by author and illustrator Sean Cassidy.

* Do You Know?: We've got four books on offer in this fun series for young readers by Alain M. Bergeron, Michel Quintin and Sampar, illustrated by Sampar. These four look at dinosaurs, hyenas, praying mantises and komodo dragons.
* 5 Elephants: Rob Laidlaw, an award-winning author and president of Zoocheck Canada, provides fascinating elephant facts and figures through the stories of five famous elephants.
* Heart & Soil: The Revolutionary Good of Gardens: Writer-environmentalist-gardener Des Kennedy has gathered articles and essays from the past decade into a book that's "brimming with playful wit and insight."
* A Treasury of B.C. Cartoons: The Best of Adrian Raeside: If you're a fan of B.C.'s well-known political cartoonist, then this one's most definitely for you, gathering as it does more than 230 of Raeside's best cartoons.
* Bonsai Love: Burnaby author Diane Tucker explores the sensual delicacy of love in this intricate book of poetry.
Want one of these books? They're free for the asking. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with "Free Books" in the subject line - and let me know which one(s) you're interested in. It's first come, first served, and the only catch is you'll have to come pick up your books at our office (or have someone else pick them up for you).
