Yay! (I've never had an imaginary best friend, but now I'm thinking it's a good idea and wondering whether Ruth Bader Ginsburg can be my imaginary best friend too.)

That was great. I kept thinking, "I wish she would do a children's book -- I'd love to get it for my daughter." Then I read here little bio where it talks about her dozen children's books!

Totally fantastic. Kalman is truly gifted in her ability to show people the world as she sees it with her own eyes.

This is a children's book for adults, and I loved it. I'm gonna have my computer show me it AGAIN!

Just last week my GF said "Let's go to D.C. and tour the Supreme Court."
I sent her this link. I'm hoping that'll satisfy her.
I suspect it won't.

I almost missed this. Maira Kalman is one of our favourite kids books authors. Insightful, brilliant. Thanks!
