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."

A true vision of contentment. I don't believe anything more exquisite can be found in the whole of the universe.

Marvelous photos, Annie.


The cuteness of that cat is burning through my blood like your breakfast high fructose corn syrup!


I think this is one of the reasons we love cats so much - their incredible ability to portray contentment.

That and the fact they're all so weird that their entertainment value is undying.
