Karla Kuskin Dies

I am very sad to hear that Karla Kuskin, author and illustrator of over 50 children’s books, has died. The NYT‘s obit says her books “combined sly wit and propulsive vitality with deep thoughtfulness about the essential natures of people, animals and things.”

All libraries should check their holdings and make sure they have a copy of Moon Have You Met My Mother?

    Thanks for correcting my typo — the mistake is entirely Lisa’s editor’s, NOT Lisa’s!
