CLOSED Acrostic Awesomeness + Prize Pack Giveaway

We have something fun for you today.  Right now on both The Book Rat and Books from Bleh to Basically Amazing, we're hosting 2 super cute guest posts (you can see mine below) and 2 Prize Packs to go along with them.
Alanna from The Flashlight Reader wanted to be involved in FTF, and wanted to get her students involved (which I was so on board with!), so she decided to have them do acrostic poems for Fairy Tale Fortnight, and I have 1 to share with you!
Check it out:

From a window in the tallest tower
Awaiting her long, lost prince--
In a kingdom far away--
Restricted by an evil witch, a
Young princess waits for

True love’s first kiss.
Adventure looming at every corner,
Leading the dashing hero to
Everlasting love and
Stories of happily ever afters.



To add to the awesome, she decided to sponsor a giveaway as well (well, 2 ---> the other one is on Ashley's blog, along with another great acrostic!)

***GIVEAWAY***

1 lucky winner will get a fabulous prize pack, which includes:
1 copy of Geek Charming by Robin Palmer
1 copy of Cindy Ella by Robin Palmer
1 copy of Tuck Everlasting Natalie Babbitt
1 copy of Fablehaven by Brandon Mull
1 copy of The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
1 copy of Wings: A Fairy Tale by E.D. Baker
+ SURPRIZES!


To enter: Leave a comment with a way to contact you, and leave some love for Alanna and her students OR tell us why you want to win.
+1 for spreading the word
US/CAN only

Ends May 5th May 8th!

  21. Awesome acrostic! That is so cool that Alanna got her students involved. It's also really cool that you have Frances Hodgson Burnett in the prize pack! A Little Princess is quite possibly my favorite book (one of those books that you dream of reading to your future hypothetical children--at least, I do), and also one of my favorite movies! Right up there with LOTR, Tangled, and Star Trek.

Sorry, folks who wish to remain unnamed, but I had to get rid of the anonymous-ness.
Step out into the light and tell me what you think.
It's not so bad out here.
