Tasha Tudor

                                  Perhaps not as well known as George Carlin, but last week Tasha Tudor passPumpkin moonshineed away also. She illustrated several of my favorite childhood books including A Little Princess and Secret Garden written by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Her pictures captured the innocence and awe of childhood.  NY Times wrote a wonderful obitury here. She will be missed.
