I am very excited to announce GAWA Gear, the Cafe Press Shop of anndowner.com. Yes, you can now flaunt your wizard pride. Show the world you Got Magic through a selection of T-shirts, onesies, hoodies, mugs, and stickers. Sport the official GAWA logo (featuring the fabulous artwork of Omar Rayyan) or let the world know that "Magic Hatches" by sipping your favorite potion from a "Magic Hatches" mug. 100% of the profit will go to the literacy charity JumpStart. If you get a shirt, please submit a picture of yourself wearing it to the guestbook account at anndowner.com

Yes, winners plural. The entries for the 2008 Design-a-Dragon contest were so imaginative and captivating I couldn't choose just one winner. So I am pleased to announce a three-way tie:
Evan, a sixth grader from Simsbury, CT, for his Three-Horned Paleon.
Ella, a second grader from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, for her 3D model [shown here] of a Florella marvoses guarding her eggs.
Norah, a third grader from Silver Lake, CA, for her Silver Leaf Dragon, Sestertius bractea.
Congratulations to the winners, and to everyone who entered. Each of the winning dragons will be featured in the next Hatching Magic book.
Detials about the winning entries, the runners up, and a full gallery of all the entries will be posted soon to anndowner.com.
