Can you believe it? The Carle is 10 years old! We threw a big bash here at The Carle last month to celebrate. It was a weekend full of book signings, artist doodling, stellar storytimes, reconnecting with old friends and making lots of new ones. It was the perfect time to thank our friends for their support over the past ten years, but we wanted to make sure we thanked those of you who were unable to attend as well. One of the special highlights of the weekend was a chance to purchase a special, autographed doodle by three amazing artists: Eric Carle, Tony DiTerlizzi, and Peter Laird.
For those of you who were unable to attend, we are going to give away one doodle by each of these artists in the next three weeks. Each doodle is an original sketch, autographed on 9″ x 6″ heavy cardstock. They are a special treasure to frame and give as a holiday gift or keep for yourself as a special memory of The Carle’s 10th Anniversary.
Today we are giving away this doodle by Tony DiTerlizzi:
It’s Thimbletack from The Spiderwick Chronicles! Pair it with an autographed copy of Arthur Spiderwick’s Field Guide to the Fantastical World Around You for a fantastic combination.
We want to thank Tony DiTerlizzi for his hours spent doodling for fans and are so grateful he made an extra one that one of you lucky readers will be able to take home! You can read a really touching post Tony wrote on his blog about what The Carle Museum means to him here. Thank you so much, Tony!
