Goodbye Tomie de Paola

My son and I loved de Paola’s books and had the privilege of meeting him once.  I will always treasure his signature next to his illustration of Botticelli’s Birth of Venus.  He looked at me at the book signing and said, “oh, you know this painting?” and I smiled and nodded. RIP.
