This book looks great! Would love to add it to our home library. :)

I love these reminders of books from the library I used to visit as a child. Thanks for the memory of Garth Williams' drawings - the tender line, the hairy texture - like everything is in close-up. What's the story of Amigo?

I'll give it a go for my nephew, forgive my ignorance, but is Williams the same fellow who illustrated Charlottes Web?
Cheers,

I love Garth Williams! I can't see his drawings without thinking of Laura Ingalls Wilder.

Garth Willaims might be my favourite illustrator, top 3 at least. Thanks for the chance.

I just perused your favorite authors list and was happy to see almost all of my favorites on it. And then surprised that I didn't recognize several.

I have liked Garth Williams' work ever since I read the Little House books as a child.
