Betty MacDonald Memorial Award Winner Wolfgang Hampel and Mrs. Burbank

Wolfgang Hampel and Betty MacDonald fan club fans,

join Betty MacDonald fan club contest, please.

We already got many mails. Thank you so much for your oustanding support.

It was a very good advice for Betty MacDonald fan club fans to reread the Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle stories and watch the interviews by Betty MacDonald Memorial Award Winner Wolfgang Hampel.

I bet everybody knows now who is real Mrs. Burbank.

Betty MacDonald fan club contest deadline: January 31, 2015

Good luck dearest Betty MacDonald fan club fans!  

Julia and Maria are the winner of the two Betty MacDonald fan club contests.

Julia knew the bike in the tree on Vashon Island  is referenced in the Christmas book "Red Ranger Came Calling" by Pulitzer Price winner Berkeley Breathed.

Maria sent the correct answer that Betty MacDonald lived on Vashon Island when the photo had been taken.

Congratulations dearest Julia and Maria! 

I tremendously enjoy Linde Lund's interview with new Betty MacDonald fan club honor member, author Traci Tyne Hilton. 

Traci's answers are really brilliant and very intelligent.

I'm going to read her books.

That's my favourite question and answer:

What do you think is the reason Betty MacDonald is beloved all over the world?

Betty's work gives us a glimpse into a world that we would have never known without her. Both life in the Olympic Mountains and on Vashon are so different from regular town and city life. I think readers love to escape, and the more remote the location, the more different the people we get to meet, the more we love the work! Betty's books help us all escape to a time that is getting farther and farther away, and a place that doesn't even exist anymore, but even when it did, it was unexpected, hilarious, and stunningly beautiful.

You'll enjoy So like an arrow swift by Brad Craft.

Dearest Brad thanks a million for sharing this very interesting information. 

You can see one of my most favourite book editions by Betty MacDonald. 

I adore the book cover very much although you might say it's kind of oldfashioned.

Tell us the original title of the book please and you'll win a Betty MacDonald fan club event DVD.

Good luck, guys!

Enjoy a very nice Friday,
