How did I miss Maira Kalman????

In all those teaching first grade years, spending hours reading children's books, how on earth did I miss Maira Kalman?

Thanks to a link about her work that Patti Digh posted on facebook, I ordered The Principles of Uncertainty, and LOVED it.
It defies description. She writes the way I like to, like a streaming waterfall, she illustrates with glorious whimsy and color, and drops names like a pro.

Am looking forward now to delving into her children's works.
