Wish I Had Found This Sooner


This morning via Lapped Catholic I came across The DePaola Code, a very inventive look at those wonderful books by one of my favorite children's authors.

You have to click on over there and read for yourself. I promise you it is worth the trip. It was for me, just for the line about itchy Benedictines, as St. Meinrad is a Benedictine Abbey and I spend so much time around the monks there.

This was a total joy.

Wow! I'm so glad you liked it. The great thing is, Tomie dePaola liked it himself!!! He actually put the entire thing up on his website

That wouldn't shock me. I haven't ever met him in person, but in interviews I have seen of him he always seems very authentic and self efacing.

I am sure he saw great creative talent in what you did.
