Wind in the Willows

Kenneth Grahame’s Wind in the Willows is absolutely my favorite book. I was given a 2-record dramatization when I was a child, which is still one of my treasured possessions. I can’t count how many times I listened to it…in the hundreds of times. This set of records is battered and scratched after years of use and are stored in my sister’s basement in Pennsylvania. Of course, no one listens to records any more and my own turntable disappeared long ago. So, it’s been just AGES, since I’ve heard it.

Today, I discovered this beloved recording on YouTube. I couldn’t be happier. It’s a thrill akin to digging up buried treasure. I’m passing on the links so that you, too, can experience this audio book which is second only, in my opinion, to Jim Dale’s magnificently brilliant performance of the Harry Potter series.

I hope you enjoy this spectacular audio version of one of the greatest children’s books ever written.

New Book

I'm very happy to announce that I will have a new book on the market soon.  It's to be published by Simon&Schuster under the direction of Paula Wiseman. The publication date has not been determined, but the illustrator is Eric Comstock, who is busily working away as we speak.  The book is a story in rhyme about some little shapes that get tangled up in a jungle gym. The entire geometric community comes to the rescue.  Looking forward with great anticipation to this book which will be a fun read at home or in school.
