It finally feels like March in Vermont, with the rain coloring the world rather gray and preparing the snow for mud season. Last week I had a terrific time puttering around our little town and sketching in honor of David Ezra Stein, this year’s Caldecott Honor Medal winner for Interrupting Chicken. Stein responded to a fan letter I sent with a delightful and very encouraging card in which he wondered what it is like to live in a small town. If only documentation-by-sketchbook were a more sought after skill!
Thank you again, David, for your wonderful card– it made my week!
