  1. >As always, thanks for the quick peek at the stars for next month. I’m particularly interested in the David Catrow title, luv his illustrations. He’s my current favorite; yes I am often fickle regarding my current favorites. In fact this morning I was perusing two newly purchased titles of his: Are You Quite Polite? and an oldie The Boy Who Looked Like Lincoln.

    I must admit, as I was reading, actually LOL (singing to myself), through Polite, I could not help but think of the previous Teddy Bear Post and wondering what folks would think the irreverent humor displayed by Catrow and author Alan Katz.
