Lowell Hess - The Penny Walk

Illustrator: Lowell Hess


Book: My Christmas Treasury


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.
