Returning to the Corgiville Fair


I saw this story today that children's book writer and illustrator Tasha Tudor died at 92. I don't read a lot of children's books since I do much more high fallutin' reading like Booker Prize winners or Jezebel but I knew Tudor's work because she often featured corgis as characters. And she was, herself, a corgi enthusiast. To wit:

Ms. Tudor’s favorite of all her books was “Corgiville Fair,” one of several she wrote about the Welsh corgi dogs she kept as pets, sometimes 13 or 14 at once.

The corgis in Tasha Tudor's illustrations were obviously done by a corgi lover/owner. All the expressions and body positions are "right." Good-bye to a great and gentle woman.

Wally! The famous do love their corgis. My mom met a famous French chanteuse last night, while fawning all over her corgi cross. But fame being what it is here in Quebec, she had no idea the woman was famous.
