Cold Cereal Giveaway!

No, not Lucky Charms! No, not Special K! It's an awesome, amazing book giveaway!
Last week I was fortunate enough to attend a booksigning at Anderson's Bookstore for Adam Rex's newest middle grade release, Cold Cereal. I've loved Adam's work since I read Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich. Rex writes and illustrates picture books, middle grade, AND young adult, all of which I've read and loved. His wit that shines in his writing was clearly evident at the book signing. He answered funny questions by kids with clever retorts, and the audience enjoyed his reading of a chapter peppered with an Irish accent (you'll see why he needed it when you read the book). Yep, I'm a huge fan of his. HUGE.
So, I was pretty excited to be able to attend the booksigning and finally meet the man.
Here's a pic of a drawing he did at the event. He asked kids to tell him names of animals and he did a cool mashup. A young fan named this a "bearger."
And here's the author and me before I sort of forced a hug on him. You think I'm joking don't you.
Lastly, for Marvelous Middle Grade Monday I have a signed book of Cold Cereal to give away to YOU! All you need to do is be a follower and tell me your favorite kind of cereal in the comments. That is it. Contest closes at 9pm central time on Wednesday!
So, what's your favorite kind of cereal?
