  1. Garth Williams was a genius.

  2. I love how this month's title rhymes! :)
    I also love the girl's sassiness in the Germaine Krull photo.

  3. You always find the most interesting things. Garth Williams's illustrations were such a prominent part of my childhood; I devoured the Little House books and I loved prairie dogs, so Amigo was a firm favorite.
