  1. Lee Asher
  2. Roger Boucher
  3. Tara Hutchinson
  4. Robert Lamar

I'll be contacting  you with instructions about how to claim your prize.  I hope you (or a young reader) enjoys the book as much as I did.  (And don't forget to let me know how you like it.)

Thank you all for playing! A special thanks to Amy Collins from Orca Book Publishers for generously making this book available to you!

Murray Sawchuk's at at Planet Hollywood’s Sin City Theater

From the Las Vegas Sun:
In the end, Murray Sawchuck had to be more than a poser. 
Not that it wasn’t a great deal of fun following Sawchuck canvas the valley mugging for photos in front of hotel-casino marquees with such self-written captions as, “Wild Wild West is a nice place!” But it had to come to an end, as Sawchuck sought to resume his stage show at a Las Vegas venue after leaving Laugh Factory at Tropicana on Oct. 30. 
Sawchuck’s new venue is Sin City Theater at Planet Hollywood, where he sets up Dec. 20 for what is to be a yearlong run of shows at 2 and 4 p.m. daily (dark Fridays).
