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."

Wow! What a really sweet thing to say. That's quite a man you've got there, Annie.


He puts the "generous" in "Greatest Generation."

Great anecdote.

I think in J's way. Without that hard row to hoe in life, I'd never have met Sun-Ae.

Not that my life has been especially difficult...

What a sweetheart!

(That reminds me of many of my Japanese-American classmates' parents whose feelings about being interred during WWII were complicated by the knowledge that they would never have met had not they been imprisoned.)
