I didn't realize that "The Toothpaste Millionnaire" was hers too!

Oh, sadness.

EDIT: Also, I am really tired of finding out from obituaries that awesome people are (or were) queer.

Aw, man. she was great. (I didn't find much of hers other than The Pushcart War and the toothpaste book. But those were certainly in and of themselves pretty nifty.)

I love dat book. I'm glad she wrote other things. I'll have to go find them.

I recognized that quotation right away.

I've thought for years that The Pushcart War should be filmed. I'm not surprised it was stalled, but I still cast parts in my head for the various roles.

I've read a few others, but nothing equaled TPC.

Hm. Books to acquire, if I ever get around to procreating.

So many books, so little time....

Surely you're familiar with this problem?

I am. But these books are very short.
