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'll buy it!

Dear Amba! Thanks so much for this. I'll let Gilad know to read this post. I am thrilled and proud to have you review this! As Richard taught me the word, I am "kvelling!"


I am the young pianist's Dad. In my past we used to say "kleib naches" rather than "kvell". Thanks for the oppportunity to do just that. And to discover another interesting blogger (no shmooz intended).
