Updates and things to come

So inspired by Ward's posts this month on Abner Graboff, I decided I'd try my hand and include a guest post this week by Don Freeman's son Roy. But when I received the final post yesterday, it was such a touching tribute, I realised it was just too special to waste on a one shot. So tune in next week, for a three part series by the son of the man who brought us Space Witch, Quiet! There's a Canary in the Library, Fly High Fly Low, Mop Top, The Guard Mouse, and of course, Corduroy. Roy is a really great guy who is working hard to keep his father's legacy alive. All our children should be thankful for that.

And remember, if you sign up to follow us on Twitter before Sunday, you'll be entered to win a $25 shopping spree in my Etsy shop... which, by the way, is still running the 50% off sale til Sunday.

That is all.

  1. Corduroy was one of my two favorite picture books as a child...I'll be looking forward to the posts!

  2. As a Don Freeman fan, I am looking forward greatly to this!
