Let them fight…! And then become best friends…! The moment I got this email, I knew I had to feature this book somehow. It's just the most adorable, cutest, funniest movie tie-in I've seen and I totally love it and I want everyone to get copies of it. So here we are! It's time for a contest! FirstShowing is proud to giveaway three copies of the new Godzilla vs. Kong tie-in kids book titled Godzilla vs. Kong: Sometimes Friends Fight: (But They Always Make Up). Yes, this is real, and if you don't win here you can easily get your own copy on Amazon or Bookshop or wherever books are sold near you. It has been a long time since we've hosted a contest, but this one is worth it. Especially because I can't wait to see Godzilla vs. Kong! It opens (in theaters + on HBO Max at the same time) very soon and it's going to be an epic rumble. More info below.
So who wants to win?! We have a total of three copies of this to giveaway. "Insight Editions' adorable board book, Godzilla vs. Kong: Sometimes Friends Fight: (But They Always Make Up) brings the characters down to size, and helps explain that there's always a way to make a fight turn out right while teaching counting skills." Available to purchase starting April 6th. The book is for kids, but we encourage adults with young children to apply. HOW TO WIN? Please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name + address, as well as a short answer to the question: Which of these two monsters is your favorite and why? Please don't forget to tell us why! And please don't write an entire essay, just a few sentences. We're just curious to know which of these big cuddle bugs you love the most. A few images of the book seen here:
The book features illustrations by the New Zealand-based artist Carol Herring. Full description: "Movie monsters Godzilla and Kong teach young readers how to be friends even when times are tough.
