Alastair Cookie’s BBAW Monsterpiece Giveaway

Hi everyone, Alastair Cookie here.  This my first Monsterpiece Giveaway, and it very special, so pay attention!  In honor of Book Blogger Appreciation Week, chartroose has decided to hold a drawing for an object that played a crucial role in the most popular children’s books of all time: the Harry Potter series.  Harry Potter had great monsters, but no cookie, which remind me…

Hey, chartroose, me need cookie you promised!  Me hungry!  Me need cookie!  Yum, here they are.  Thank you, chartroose.

Excuse me a second.  Um-num-num-num-num-num!  Um-num-num-num-num-num!  Ahhh!  That better!

Urrp…where was I?  Oh yes, the famous Harry Potter object that chartroose is giving away is this one: 

Chartroose is giving away two of them because she love book bloggers and she love monsters!  That two things!


 “Two monster books to count, HA, HA, HA, HA, HA!”


Get away Count!  This Cookie Monster gig!  Go back to your castle and count dead sheep!  Get away! 

Ugh, that was stressful, so me, Cookie Monster, need to relax.  Cookie Monster need love.  Show me love, chartroose, and give me more cookie!  Cookie mean love!  Love, love love–cookie, cookie, cookie!  Thank you, chartroose.

    Hey, this cookie have vampire bats on them!  Very funny!  Um-num-num-num-num-num!  Um-num-num-num-num-num!  Braaack!  (excuse me).  Delicious!

Umm, back to the giveaway.  The monster books verrry special.  They soft and cuddly and they say grrrr if you pull their tongues.  Me want one, but me want cookie more! 

If YOU want a Monster Book of Monsters toy, leave a message in the comments section of this post.  Make sure your e-mail address is legitimate, so chartroose doesn’t have to do all the work.  U.S. residents only, please.

May the best monster lover and cookie lover win!  The drawing will be held on Wednesday, September 17 at around noon. 

This has been Monsterpiece Giveaway starring me, Alastair Cookie.  Good-bye, and good luck!

(Me don’t feel so good now).



  1. I’m not sure what I’d do with the book, but the post cracked me up! I remember this from my long-ago Sesame Street-watching days.

    Anyway, please sign me up – and thanks, Cookie!

  2. Oh, I would love one of those wonderful monster books for my 10 year old son. He just finished reading the entire series of books a couple of weeks ago, and of course, he loved them (probably as much as I did).

    We’d love to enter your wonderful (and adorably monsterific) contest, please.

    Thank you!
    Traci and Brandon (see no work for chartroose – I won’t even make you change at to @!)

  3. Oh, my giveaways are going to seem lame now. 😉 So funny!

  4. That is the coolest thing ever! I definitely want in 🙂 And you crack me up Chartroose, lol. And um….I kinda want some cookies now…oh yeah, email is chrisa511(at)gmail(dot)com!

  5. Ahahahaha! That is a super cool post! I’d enter just for that (don’t worry, I have a US mailing address!) except I’m a HUGE Harry Potter fan as well, woohoo! !

  6. Oh man, Chartroose…it’s like we’re twins or something…I talk about scarfing cookies in my blog!

    I’m not entering the giveaway…just wanted to pop in and see if you’ve baked anything more…I’ll knock that Allistair Cookie down for the first chance to burn my fingers on the cookie sheet — no kidding!

  7. Cute post. I really think my nephews need that book desperately. Going to go have cookies for breakfast.

  8. Hi! I found you thru My Friend Amy. I would love to be entered in your contest. Thanks!

  9. 1 – Fabulous post! I LOVED Monsterpiece Theater as a kid. 🙂

    2 – OH PICK ME PICK ME PLEASE PICK ME!!!!!!!!!!!!! Kiddo just asked me to read all the HP books to him (he’s already seen all 5 movies and listened to the audio version of book 6) and this would be the PERFECT companion to cuddle while we read. KIDDO WOULD LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!!!!

    3 – My email is on my profile and my blog so … PLEASE PICK ME PLEASE OH PLEASE OH PLEASE!!!!!

  10. You have the most hilarious contest posts. I would love to have a copy of the Monster Book of Monsters, that is just too awesome.

  11. Everytime I see Harry Potter mentioned, I have the urge to read them again. This book would SO fill that urge without my reading 7 giant (ok, the first few weren’t giant) books again!

  12. Ha-ha-ha-ha! My, but you sound just like Cookie Monster (Allastaire Cookie) – so funny!

    Sign me up!

  14. OMG, I love Monsterpiece Theatre! Wha a clever post. I’d be thrilled to win a Monster Book – I just started reading the HP series this year (I was one of those anti-fad people who avoided the bandwagon). I love it. Thisprize would make a great Christmas gift for our Harry Potter club gift swap!

  15. This was a clever one Chartroose! Look at you! I feel so inferior now….how cute is that monster book! I would love to have one. Good luck everyone!

    I really want some cookies now too!
