when “This It Not My Hat” won the Caldecott, Tomie dePaola, who I’d only met once briefly, sent me a long handwritten letter of congratulations/welcome & talked about the book & it was almost more crazy than winning the damn thing. I’ll miss waving at him sheepishly across rooms.

Rest in peace to Tomie dePaola, one of my favorite gay children’s book authors author of Strega Nona, who also wrote a semi-autobiographical picture book called “Oliver Button Is a Sissy” (1979) which is about a boy who likes “sissy” things like dolls, dancing and picking flowers

We lost a bit of magic today with the passing of children’s book creator Tomie DePaola. The creator of Strega Nona and her overflowing pasta, Big Anthony, and Nana Upstairs and Nana Downstairs (260 books in total) will never be forgotten for his amazing talent and kindness.
