Another Brother Contest!!!

My adorable and talented husband, Matthew Cordell, has a whoppin' year ahead of him. First up? Another Brother, a book he both wrote and illustrated, which will arrive in bookstores this Tuesday. Ano Bro received two starred reviews, and I'd like to post quotes from all of the reviews but in the interest of time and the child who is asking me "are you done yet?" over and over, I will let you see the glory of the book for yourself. Matt finished his Ano Bro trailer yesterday, complete with homegrown music. Here it is:

And here's a great interview with him over at Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast. Truth be told, I don't like the part where he says in reference to his office, "My wife calls all of this disgusting. I call it my studio." Makes me sound like a bitch, right? Like I don't jibe with the creativity at hand. But we only have a three bedroom house! That's the third bedroom! I worry it's contributing to allergies. It's all about me. That's the name of a store nearby. "All About Me." Isn't that weird? Anyway-- a contest! Yes!

Here's the rub: You have until Tuesday 9 p.m.Central time to enter. All you have to do is watch the trailer above, then decide what you would name the next brother if another happened to pop out! Type it in the comments of this post, along with your email address, and I will draw a name at random on Tuesday, the book's release day. Sorry, but I can only ship within the U.S. Unless someone buys me a house on Degrassi Street. Wha?

Matthew's book looks so adorable. And the "homegrown" music was the BEST!

I bought this for my library and cannot wait until it comes in. It looks so cute! I love the illustrations (especially the barfing sheep!). I think I'll be humming the music all day. I love a kazoo (that was the instrument, right?)

P.S. I'm watching Troll as we speak. I feel like I must have seen it as a child because it's very familiar. What a star studded cast! Troll would be a good name for a brother. He could be the weird one.

Cute trailer! I'd say the next brother would be Artie.
