Laurel Snyder’s running a little contest over at her kids-books-blog:

Here’s the deal:

I need to NAME a dastardly fellow, a filthy scoundrel, a naughty man from the Wild Wild West, stuck in the 21st century. He’s truly rotten– cruel to animals, mean to kids, and willing to rob banks and kidnap YOU just for the fun of it. He wears a black hat and a long dark coat. He smells funny.

Can you help me???


I’ll select the best name I’m offered for use in my book (Random House, 2009), and the winner will be thanked most graciously, and also given a signed ARC of the finished book, and the chance to name ANOTHER character in the book as well (I’ll select the character). But they can name this other character ANYTHING THEY WANT!

Names must be suitable for ages 7-11, so I guess that means no Scrotum Scrotemicus?
