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."

Oh, my goodness . . . Too adorable.

Here are more pix, including one of suckling tiger kit (scroll down) . . . I'm not sure about the rationale, though:

"The zoo is trying to boost visitor numbers by teaching domestic animals such as pigs, and wild animals such as tigers, to live together in harmony from an early age."

Kumbaya, anyone? Makes for great photo ops, though.


Long before Kumbaya, there was the Peaceable Kingdom. An idea in the Bible (not a recent invention of soft-headed eco-liberals), and obviously a very old and deep dream of humankind, if an impossible one. Clever of the zoo to tap into it.

I bet the tiger eats a pig before the Disney movie comes out.

And no, I'm not just saying that to be cynical.


You know, this should have all the fundies up in arms...interspecies relationships may start us down the slippery slope to...err...never mind.
