    Story: The Penny Walk

    Publisher: Simon And Schuster 1957

    I was lucky enough to receive a phone call last week from Mr. Lowell Hess himself. he said he was feeling well and taking time with his friends and family this holiday season. He has Parkinson's and his eye sight isn't so great but told me he still manages to draw a couple hours a day when possible. He's a great man and I feel lucky he took the time to call me and chat.

    Best Holiday wishes Retro Kids!

      Oh, that's so cool. If you talk to him again, tell him we all wish him a very happy Christmas and New Years. And this is a wonderful illustration. Thanks for sharing.
