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."

Amba, I'm with you--this is one of Ann's best ever, which I noted in her comments section.

I'm also with your friend: One oft-repeated line of mine, in real life, is: "Of course, God has a sense of humor. How else do you explain the duckbill platypus?"

(This not withstanding the fact that I am both a committed Believer and also accept the scientific reality of evolution.)
