Author’s birthdays this week –
September 26 – Bernard Waber, from Lyle, Lyle Crocodile
fame. While he’s not our gators,
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.
