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."

I love that description of Tamar: the magical good witch in a fairy tale! So accurate!

Richard Lawrence Cohen

It fits her written persona perfectly. Lucky both of you! Now I'm waiting for Tamar's description of you. In fact this could be a meme if there weren't the little problem of airfare: Describe a fellow blogger based on the blog alone, then meet and see how well your description matches the reality.


Amba, I am honored and touched by your description of me! [Am not quite sure about the "round" part, though :-)]

It was truly glorious meeting you and Jacques ... am home now so probably should post something about this, eh?

I adore Richard's "meme" idea. In fact, we probably should create a bloggers' fund for such a meme - or, at the very least, for our pod-mates! As "poddess" can I decree such a fund?
