I am not Norton Juster


Because my dear friends Barry Moser and Norton Juster are frequently mistaken for me, the staff at The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art made them these T-shirts, which they wore with smiles on their faces at the Museum's 10th anniversary celebration in November.

Then, a few months later, I received a shirt in the mail from Norton Juster for me to wear at "important occasions" when I would be mistaken for him!
Life is always better when your friends have a good sense of humor.

My Father

My father gave me very few material gifts, but the gift he gave me was that on weekend mornings, automatically, we’d go for long walks and talk with each other about all kinds of things. He truly loved me, and this I realized much, much later. 

Happy Father's Day to all!
