Sorrow at passing

Trina Schart Hyman was a wonderful children's illustrator. Her wonderful work brought to life many tales. She passed away in December, but left behind a rich inheritance. Among my favourites:

Child's Christmas in Wales by Dylan Thomas 1985
The Kitchen Knight: a tale of King Arthur by Margaret Hodges (one of a number of collaborations with Hodges)
Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins by Eric Kimmel

The Boston Globe had a nice obituary, which quoted from an earlier interview.
