I too need to look for this. Just beautiful. Thank you Gemma. Happy Mary Day to you.
I am a big fan of Tomie...I remember seeing him on TV many moons ago and he seemed so...nice, I just wanted to hug him. ♥♥♥
I have a copy of this wonderful book. As some of you may know, I volunteer a lot for my local library and I especially enjoy our monthly used books/media sales in Palos Verdes. We always have Paola books for sale.
oh! I have never seen this book! drat! It would have been perfect for my Catholic classroom. thanks for introducing it to me!
How nice to find her even at work. She must have known you would be there. xoxo
