Author Kelly Starling Lyons newest picture book, Ellen's Broom, illustrated by Daniel Minter was released today. Lyons will be on a nine day blog tour starting today. The full schedule can be found here. The first stop is at Simple Saturday. Just three questions but I love Lyons answers. See for yourself and leave a comment for a chance at a prize.

"Anyone who leaves a comment on any of Kelly's tour stops will be entered in a drawing for the grand prize - a signed poster of the Ellen's Broom cover and a decorated wedding broom from Stuart's Creations (www.stuartscreations.com). The winner will be drawn on January 16. So make a comment, y'all!!! Win that broom."

Check out the great trailer. The music is a perfect fit.
