He is one of our national treasures. The Golden Books had some of the best -- Gergely, Tenggren (sp?), Rojankovsky. Good to see this posting. Now I'll look at the rest of your site!

Thanks! It was fun looking at some of his other work. I recently bought a little Golden Book for my grandson. His dad grew up with the series.
