Who needs underwear anyway??

In honor of the fact that it is 105° F in Portland today, I had my hair cut off ala Jamie Lee Curtis and am hiding in the one air-conditioned room in the house (which, lucky me, happens to be my little writing room). While I hide, I’m picking favorites off the shelf and thumbing through them. It’s not the kind of day where I have the energy or concentration to actually READ said books, just peruse them.

The image I’m posting is from one of my very favorite picture books: The Philharmonic Gets Dressed by Karla Kuskin, illustrated by Marc Simont (love, Love, LOVE him!) and edited by genius Charlotte Zolotow, Harper Collins, 1982.

This is one of a few picture books that make me laugh out loud.
