'The Book of Life' 2015 Giveaway - Round 1!

The U.S. paperback (and the paperback boxed set) of 'The Book of Life' will be on sale on the 26th of May (for all of you who may have been waiting for the paperback!)  Also, the U.S. book tour is almost upon us (click the link to see the dates).  Our regulars could've probably predicted this was coming, but we are still excited to be giving away these prizes from Penguin Books!  They were kind enough to offer this book package for to us to give to a lucky winner.

Prize package includes items pictured -- images of items not to scale
