Over the past 9 years Cheerios has given away more than 50 million children's books inside boxes of Cheerios cereal. The newest specially marked boxes of Cheerios contains the book "How Do You Hug a Porcupine?" by Laurie Isop. Laurie was the grand prize winner of the Cheerios New Author Contest in 2009.
