Free Paranorman iOS game AND an art book giveaway (!)

UPDATE: Julie B won and has been contacted.

First, there's a free Paranorman game available for download at iTunes:

THE OFFICIAL MOBILE GAME FOR PARANORMAN, the animated zombie comedy in theaters August 17! 2-BIT BUB is an adorably odd action-puzzler featuring mobile gaming’s weirdest new hero, Bub, a ghost-dog in two bits. Slingshot Bub's ectoplasmically conjoined body through stunning visuals pulled straight from the movie!

The Story
Norman Babcock knows all the ghosts in Blithe Hollow. And none of them gets into more trouble than Bub. It all started when Bub ran in front of an animal rescue van (tragic, and ironic), thus beginning his afterlife as a bisected ghost-dog. Next, he took to playing with bones from the old graveyard. Turns out those were zombie bones, and the zombies want them back! Now Bub's on a mission to collect all the bones he lost, swinging through levels on ghostly orbs to reach his goal!

- Play through 30 levels in 10 dazzling locations, with more to come when ParaNorman hits theaters August 17!
- Collect and share Norman's zombie posters
- Earn dog tags through Game Center Achievements
- Immerse yourself in the handmade world of ParaNorman
- Be the first to know about new trailers and exclusive content
- Play along with original music by Jon Brion
- Made in collaboration with legendary game designer Graeme Devine

Something is stirring beneath the sleepy town of Blithe Hollow. And Norman, a misunderstood 11-year-old with the power to speak to the dead, is the only one who can stop it. In addition to a horde of invading zombies, Norman will have to take on ghosts, witches, and, worst of all, small-minded grown-ups to save his town from a centuries-old curse.
And second, I have a copy of the excellent The Art and Making of Paranorman to give away. (I posted a few photos from the book here).

For a chance to win, simply comment on this post and include your email so I can contact you if you win. One entry per person, and my apologies, but this contest is only open to USA residents. The book is currently 40% off at Amazon.
