Lyle is a perennial favorite here in the Fragile Earth Orphanage.

September 30 – Edgar D’Aulaire is 1/2 of a truly creative couple of author/illustrators. I have copies of their books of Greek Mythology


and Norse Mythology


that I got when I was 10, and I still refer to them to this day. The illustrations are gorgeous – full of color, just the way I like them!

October 3 – Munro Leaf, the author of The Story of Ferdinand


This story holds a special place in our hearts because our wonderful Fiona


was the living example of Ferdinand. She always had to stop and smell all, and I stress all, the flowers. Walks with her were extended, to say the least.
