My heart goes out to the children’s book world today as we say goodbye to one of the most beloved and respected illustrators of our time. I only met Leo a few times in NY, but it was enough to share a hearty laugh and let him know how much he and his wife’s work meant to me…to all of us. Condolences to his wife and illustration partner, Diane, and their son as they say goodbye. Let’s raise our pencils in tribute. To all of his friends and longtime colleagues, I am so sorry for your loss.

I can’t believe how many icons our world of children’s literature has lost in just a month! There are no words. I hope you draw something in Leo’s honor. Peace to the family.

I know. It seems like someone leaves us everyday. It’s a lot to grasp.
