I've featured one of my all time favourite children's book illustrators Garth Williambefore. If you grew up with Golden Books, I bet you remember and love him too! These black and white ink drawings are from the children's book "Harry Cat's Pet Puppy". The look on Harry Cat's face in some of these drawings is priceless!
This is Arlo and he's in his favourite chair. It's his favourite chair for three reasons. Firstly, in his opinion, it's very fine looking. The rainbows and clouds immediately put him at ease whenever he gets up on it. Say no more. Secondly, it's very comfy. Favourite chairs have to be comfy and this one is especially so. Thirdly, it's positioned very conveniently so that he has a clear view of the kitchen (and therefore anything exciting going on in there) and an equally clear view of the lounge room and TV set. So I think you can appreciate why Arlo has decided that this is his favourite chair. I think it would be my favourite chair too.
Happy Halloween gentle blog readers! I have already shared with you the movie that I consider to be the most scary movie in the history of movies, so I haven't had much room to move this year in relation to all things scary. However! I thought one of my favourite musicals of all time might fill in the breach. Yes, The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Not terribly scary, but hugely enjoyable and terribly nostalgic for me. Happy Halloween!
