More me and Look-in
This the remainder of the correspondence between me and an earnest inquiirer about Look-in and a little more.Thanks for all the pictures. Much of this stuff I don’t have copies of.

Where the Wild Things Are the most well known of the more than 100 books he illustrated and the 20 he wrote and illustrated .
Me and Look-in.
Some time ago I responded to a questionnaire about my time with Look-in. The interrogator disappeared and as far as I know my replies were never used. Waste not want not so here are the answers - questions lost - that have been on my computer all these years.

Sirius - Coming soon
It is my intention is to produce a ‘comic’, Sirius, on this website. Technical limitations means each ‘page’ will be presented as a blog consisting of a row of single frames.It will appear intermittently.
