Here’s how you enter:

Ms. Hallaway has agreed to ship internationally so this is open for everyone! 

Contest ends on my mom's birthday-- May 30.

  9. I always loved the three fairies from Sleeping Beauty. My cousins and I used to pretend we were them when we were kids, except I never wanted to be the chubby one "Merriweather" :)


  10. OMG! I forgot to tell you my favorite Disney character....well, you know my answer.....so, I'll say the Princesses instead. Favorite movie...again...a given...so I'll go with Cinderella.

    Thanks for the great contest!

  11. Congrats on your first contest Jen!! As a child I loved Cinderella and knew every word to all the songs in The Little Mermaid. As an adult I really enjoyed Finding Nemo althought that's Pixar and not Disney. I would have to say The Little Mermaid was my absolute favorite Disney movie. Ariel's voice was so beautiful and I loved all of the songs in it. And it's just a great movie!

    Awesome prizes! I've never read this author before so it's a great prize to win.

  12. And I hope your mom has a wonderful birthday!

  13. great contest tink! please enter me :)
    My fav Disney film is The Little Mermaid, Ariel is my favorite. And the music is just great in that movie.
    When it first came out in theaters, I went three times to see it. One year I dressed my daughter up as Ariel for Halloween.


  14. Congrats on your first giveaway (and thanks so much to Tate for being so generous!)

    My favorite Disney character is Mulan. I love her and her story and the movie so much. And I'm going to stop there because I can think of so many non-Disney favorites...


  15. Oh there's so many to choose from, but I guess I'd have to say that my favorite Disney movie character is Ariel from The Little Mermaid. Great movie, great fun character!

  16. I'd say Aladin! What a cutie, great character. :)

  17. Congrats on you first contest.
    I can't find the first book anywhere here, so thank you for the chance to win the books.

    My favorite Disney character is Belle or maybe Tigger.Its hard to pick one.


  18. My favorite Disney movie was The Little Mermaid!

  19. Oh, there's so many Disney movies that are awesome! But in the end I went with Abu from Aladdin. That little monkey has made me laugh ever since I was a kid lol

  20. Congrats on your first contest, Jen!

  25. Congradulations on this, your first contest. I posted all about it over at my blog but I'm also going to be greedy and enter your contest also. It's hard not to since the prize is a Tate Hallaway book!
    My favorite Disney movie is a toss up between Beauty and the Beast and Dumbo. There's just something about those two movies. And my favorite characters are Beast and Dumbo. But thankfully I'm not alone in picking two since lots of others have also. I guess with Disney, its hard to pick only one favorite.
    Here's wishing you mother a fab birthday when it hits the 30th!

  26. Favorite Disney Character? Oh...there are soooo many. There's Arial from The little mermaid, there's Tinkerbell and so many more. I love all Disney movies (well, almost) so I in turn love most of the characters. Recently they have this disney movies featuring barbie. I love those (seriously).

    Thanks so much for the giveaway!!!
