Kids ask me who is my favorite illustrator. Well one of my favorites growing up was Susan Perl, who died at 60 in 1983. I remember the Health-Tex ads she illustrated in the sixties that always had a multi-cultural group of kids pondering a question, such as "Why Am I Ticklish?". She also illustrated some children's books including the still available Little Popcorn. For elegance of line, body postures, and facial expressions her work had no equal. This picture (click on it) is from the word-birds of Davy McFifer, written by Barbara Klimowicz and published by Abingdon Press in 1970.
