Win "We Bought a Zoo" in Book and DVD Form


Sometimes people need a change of scenery, and then sometimes people take that idea and get a bit carried way, perhaps taking on a teensy bit more than they bargained for. Such is the case in We Bought a Zoo, the true story of Benjamin Mee who, while struggling with the recent loss of his wife, uprooted his two kids and moved them to a new house...the backyard of which just happened to be a private zoo. It sounds like the kind of zany idea out of a children's book, but it's all true, and so Director Cameron Crowe took the story and made it into a heartwarming film starring Matt Damon, Scarlett Johansson, and Thomas Haden Church. To celebrate its recent release, we're giving away two prize packs which include both the original book and the film on DVD.

To find out how you can win, just keep reading.

Benjamin Mee (Damon) is a Los Angeles newspaper columnist and adventure writer who, as a single father, faces the challenges of raising his two young children.  Hoping that a fresh start and a new life will restore their family spirit, Mee quits his job and buys an old rural house outside the city with a unique bonus feature: a zoo named the Rosemoor Animal Park, where dozens of animals reside under the care of head zookeeper Kelly Foster (Johansson) and her dedicated team.  With no experience, limited time and a shoestring budget, Mee sets out with the support of his family and the local community to reopen the zoo.  Now, Benjamin is no longer reporting an adventure story; he’s living it in his own backyard.
