With its brilliant illustrations, and the addition of a note from Tomie and a beautifully redesigned jacket, this special anniversary edition is perfect for the whole family to share.
It drove him through the years of teaching, designing greeting cards and stage sets, and painting church murals until 1965, when he illustrated his first children's book, Sound, by Lisa Miller for Coward-McCann. Eventually, freed of other obligations, he plunged full time into both writing and illustrating children's books.

He was also the 1990 United States nominee for the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for illustration.

The Duffy Family
Gifts of the Spirit
Gifts of the Spirit was founded in 1983 by Gladys and Mary Dieringer. When Natalie Duffy heard it was set to close, in September of 2018, she knew that our city couldn’t lose this little gem and has been operating it ever since, with her 6 little boys (and now a daughter) in tow. In November 2020, due to a rent increase and other complications of Covid, the sorrowful decision was made to permanently close the storefront and operate remotely from their home, allowing the ability to educate her children and still meet customer’s needs.
Gifts of the Spirit is happy to offer shipping and pick up options, as well as delivery to close in Portland, OR areas. We do special orders!
