    He is my hero. I remember when I read that he passed away - I was walking across my college campus and saw a newspaper box with the news on it. I stood there and cried my eyes out. Miss you so much, Dr. S!!!

    Butter Battle Book was a wonderful book! He was actually an artist as well as an author/illustrator. He did some very interesting pieces of art. I have always wanted to own one, but have never had the money...
