Goodenough Gismo

  • Gismo39
    This is the classic children's book, Goodenough Gismo, by Richmond I. Kelsey, published in 1948. Nearly unavailable in libraries and the collector's market, it is posted here with love as an "orphan work" so that it may be seen and appreciated -- and perhaps even republished, as it deserves to be. After you read this book, it won't surprise you to learn that Richmond Irwin Kelsey (1905-1987) was an accomplished artist, or that as Dick Kelsey, he was one of the great Disney art directors, breaking your heart with "Pinocchio," "Dumbo," and "Bambi."

So glad you've discovered Sam. During the first year (1660/2003) I kept trying to make converts, but people felt so burdened by the notion of reading it every day for 10 years.
Anyway, every morning I print out an entry (usually 2 to 3 days in arrears to catch the annotations) and give it to my husband. We then pass it on to a neighbor (a late riser) so that we all get Sam along with coffee and the morning paper. Yes, it is like time travel and it is delicious
