    Is that your stained glass on the Bookol­o­gy page, Sparky? It’s gor­geous! I was also a huge fan of Eleanor Cameron’s “Mush­room Plan­et” books. Think­ing about them brings me right back to being eleven years old again!

      David: Yes, it’s one of our (Car­ol and I = Gem­i­ni Glass) win­dows. I’ve been afraid to reread them for fear the mag­ic would not sur­vive my 60+ years of life expe­ri­ence. On a side note, do you remem­ber a book that prob­a­bly came out in the ear­ly 50s about a stegosaurus that wan­ders out of the black hills/badlands and meets a young boy and then, at the end, wan­ders back into the wilds?
