Quiz Time! Win a copy of I Feel Better with a Frog in my Throat

I Feel Better with a Frog in my Throat is now in book stores! And that means one thing.Well, actually two things. One, your child will never look at medicine the same way and will probably have a few two many leech facts roaming around in their brain. And Two....giveaway time!

I have said it over and over again - Celebrities are the new royalty, but now here is some art to prove it.

1. Angelina Jolie

2. Anne Hathaway

3. Cameron Diaz


4. Alice Cooper


5. Anderson Cooper (that other Cooper)


6. Willie Nelson


7. Dakota Fanning (awwww)


8. Robert Pattinson


9. Natalie Portman


10. Jim Broadbent


11. And last, my favorite: Amy Whinehouse


The Rules:
To play, list the following in the comments section:
1. The title of the painting
2. The artist
3. Who it depicts (if we know)

Whoever gets the most answers correctly by Friday will win a shiny new copy of either I Feel Better with a Frog in my Throat or The Raucous Royals. Your choice.


I am going to have some more medicine related quizzes next week and I will post the latest book reviews. (deep breath) Thankfully, they are all good!

If you are planning to buy the book from Amazon, using the link below is always appreciated. I get a small kickback that goes to supporting the cost of maintaining this blog, newsletter, library late fees, history books and hot chocolate consumption.



Sources: I will provide the sources for this beautiful digital work at the end of the contest.
You can find more of these amazing digitally manipulated paintings here.

Well, I barely had time to finish my mid afternoon hot chocolate and you guys already got all the answers. Not surprised.

Greer got all the answers in first so he/she is the winner. Greer, please send me your mailing address to info at CarlynBeccia dot com and let me know which book your prefer.

Congratulations on the new book, Carlyn! I don't even have a kid the right age, but I'm going to buy it anyway because I'm just a slavering fan of your artwork.

Whoever, ahem, edited these paintings is a photoshop master!
