Simms Taback 1932-2011

 Simms Taback was an author and illustrator who used a lot of happy color. He was awarded the Caldecott Medal in 2000 for Joseph Had a Little Overcoat. If you have not had the pleasure of reading any of his books, I recommend you hit up your local bookstore or library for a read or two or three. I grew up with his illustrations. Mr. Taback passed away this past Sunday. Rest in peace and color, rest in peace and color...
