    Book Report

    Miss Potter's Tea Party
    The Tale of Cuckoo Brow Wood (the third book in Susan's Cottage Tales series) will be published in just a few weeks. To celebrate, China and Ruby are hosting a tea party. To join in the fun, go to mysterypartners.com/Beatrix, then click on "Miss Potter's Tea Party."

    A Beatrix Potter Contest
    And here's another way to join the celebration. Go to mysterypartners.com, and click on "Cottage Tales Contest." We're drawing names for three copies of The Tale of Cuckoo Brow Wood. All you have to do to enter the drawings is to answer a few questions correctly. Good luck!

    If you'd like a signed bookplate for your copy of The Tale of Cuckoo Brow Wood, send a stamped self-addressed envelope to Bookplate, PO Box 1616, Bertram TX 78605. If you'd like your bookplate personalized, tell Susan what you'd like her to say. (These Cuckoo Brow Wood-specific bookplates are about 2"x3", so don't ask for a paragraph.) Wonderful for gifts!

    Dead Man's Bones in Audio
    Recorded Books has just released Dead Man's Bones. To rent or purchase, go to recordedbooks.com and type Susan's name in the the author search box.
