Tasha Tudor - In Memorium
Tasha Tudor, the much loved children's book writer and illustrator, died on Wednesday at her home in Vermont at the age of ninety-two. A prolific illustrator for many years, Tudor's art has charmed several generations of children and their families. Two of her books won Newbery Honor awards, and her title Corgiville Fair has become a firm favorite with many children all over the world. In this book Corgi dogs and other animals are the main characters, and they have a number of delightful adventures which are reminiscent of a bygone era. Tudor herself choose to live the simple life on her farm making her own bread, knitting, weaving, and caring for her beautiful garden. Tasha Tudor's lovely books and her indomitable spirit will be missed greatly. Do visit the Tasha Tudor and Family website to find out more about this extraordinary woman.
