Today is the birthday of illustrator / author, Doug Cushman. Many happy returns of the day!
Recently, our 16-year-old pulled out his copy of The Mystery of King Karfu. He decided it was time to introduce his little brother to Seymour Sleuth and friends. We hadn't seen that book in years, but since last week it's been reread at least five times.
The reason for this is surely Doug Cushman's skill as both storyteller and illustrator.
