In Tom's Midnight Garden of Eden, Baby. Don't You Know That I Love You?
I leave for a couple of days and just look what happens! One of the shining stars of kiddie lit ends up dead. Naughty naughty. What do you think is going to happen when I go to ALA? Are we going to find Maurice Sendak or Tana Hoban pushing up the daisies? What's that you say? Tana Hoban is also dead? Well what about Theodore Taylor? WHAT? Look here, my lovelies, we lost many fine and outstanding souls this year (Ernestine Gilbreth Carey comes to mind). Enough is enough. No one else is allowed to die, got it?
Thanks to Read Roger for the Pearce heads up.
