Giveaway: The Princess of Borscht by Leda Schubert, illustrated by Bonnie Christensen

Enter to win an author-signed copy of The Princess of Borscht by Leda Schubert, illustrated by Bonnie Christensen (Neal Porter/Roaring Brook, 2011).

From the promotional copy:

Ruthie's grandma is in the hospital, not surprisingly complaining about the food. All she wants is a nice bowl of borscht. 

Ruthie comes to the rescue, even though she hasn't the faintest idea of how to make it. 

With the help of a few well-meaning neighbors (including the Tsarina of Borscht and the Empress of Borscht and some ingenuity of her own), a soul-reviving brew is concocted...

To enter, comment on this post and include an email address (formatted like: cynthia at cynthialeitichsmith dot com) or a link to an email address. Or email Cynthia directly with "The Princess of Borscht" in the subject line.

Author-sponsored. Eligibility: U.S. Deadline: midnight CST Dec. 12.

Cynsational Notes

The New York Times Book Review raved, "Schubert ('Ballet of the Elephants') turns the story of a sick relative, not a particularly cheery topic, into a sweet and salty tale, warmed by Christensen’s lively sketches, about bickering Jewish neighbors and intergenerational caregiving."

The book looks like a great read, but I'm outside of the USA! And there is no Kindle version available at Amazon...

This book sounds wonderful. How fun it would be for little chefs to read and then try their hand at cooking as well.
