Hot Men of Children's Literature: Part 21 In a Series
Yesterday, you may have noticed the notable absence of a Fuse #8 staple. There was no mention of this week's Hot Man. I apologize. On Saturday I went to a Coney Island baseball game and watched a publicity-happy couple marry afterwards on the field. On Sunday I ended up in a particularly Italian part of Hoboken across the street from where Frank Sinatra was born on the day the Italians won the World Cup. On Monday I went straight from work to Bryant Park to watch an outdoors showing of Bullitt (1968). On Tuesday I went straight from work to the Film Forum to watch a double feature of two Billy Wilder films Ninotchka and Midnight. Today I am exhausted but ready to pronounce my pick. This nominee comes straight from the publisher Dial. I was informed to merely Google the name "Ard Hoyt". I did and was an instant convert. The illustrator of such books as One Dog Canoe and I'm a Manatee, Mr. Hoyt . . . um . . . okay, honestly? I know nothing about the guy. Apparently he loves dogs as shown here:
Other than that, I've not much in the way of info on him. But man oh man. This is the kind of feller that makes this series all the more worthwhile. Give it up for the Hoyt-man.
