Tomie DePaola

Searching for "feel good" Christmas stories, I came upon this episode of "The Story." In this interview with Tomie DePaola, children's book author and illustrator, he describes his childhood memories of Christmas. You can listen to it on your computer. I listened to it on my iPod as I wandered through the overcrowded grocery store....and even found myself smiling.

The Story: Christmas Past

He looks a wee bit like an elf. (Which is a good thing.)

My kids and I heard him read from his memoir a few years back, and he's like Santa Claus in person. We were all so starstruck it was the most we could do to say, "We love your books!" to him.

Thanks for the link!
