I will miss you, Barbara Park, and Junie B. Jones.
A little glitter can turn your whole day around. Barbara Park
E.L, I made it a goal in life to visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art because of The Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. The museum was just a fab as I imagined it would be.
Happiness is excitement that has found a settling down place, but there is always a little corner that keeps flapping around. E. L. Konigsburg
Rollin, I miss your unfailing belief in others. Rest in peace, my colleague, my first illustrator, and my friend. You sketched "Jo and Louie" at my very first book signing, and I still treasure it.
