I've enjoyed the Roy McKie week. We don't have this book, so that would be great if I actually won something!

What a great tribute! I wasn't aware of all that McKie accomplished, though I've always enjoyed his work. Now I'll look at it with fresh eyes.

I've enjoyed learning more about McKie. I ordered two of the Cerf/McKie joke books for my son after reading your posts. I'm sure he'll love them. Thank you!

I am in love with the simplicity of the books from this era.

I've been a fan of Roy McKie for years (I just never knew it until this week!) I loved so many of his books as a child - thanks so much for the opportunity to enjoy his talents all over again!

I'm a new follower to your blog (having followed a link on Snow, if I recall) and I've been enjoying this series on Roy McKie. We received Ten Apples on Top from a friend of my husband's who was an elementary school teacher in a former life. I'm looking forward to discovering more of Roy's books.

I wasn't familiar with Roy McKie. Thanks!

Looks like fun. Gotta love the crazy rhymes!

Lindsey said...

This looks so cute! Thanks for giving away a copy. :) :) :)

I was looking for inspiration for my art, love children's vintage books and have a small collection, and just happened on this blog by way of Google today. I enjoyed reading about Roy McKie. I've bookmarked this site and it will be a part of my daily reads. Thanks so much for your generosity!

Just got here via a link for 'king of mice', which was the result of a dinner party conversation I wasn't even a part of! I love it when things like that happen. I found 'The King, The Mice and The Cheese' which was one of my favourite books as a kid in the US. Now that I live in the UK, I'm so glad I found this blog, as I'd love to find as many of these books as I can, to rebuild my childhood library for our future-family-planning. I remember nearly all the ones I've scrolled through so far. Can't wait to see more of this site! And of course, I'd love In A People House.

Cheers
Chella

Thank you for interviewing Roy Mckie and sharing his story with us. I have swooned over his illustrations in the Riddles books, but didn't know anything about him. Thank you for your tribute to this talented and kind man!
