Thank you for your enthusiastic response to the Jim Copp book. I was hoping to write you a bit about how the book came to be but there isn’t enough room here. I’ve heard those particular 3 stories hundreds of times and I still collapse in a heap of delight every single time. Thanks to you, a lot more people are aware of the book and my hope of re-introducing Jim Copp to a new generation is happening right this very minute.

Glad you liked it. In the interests of time, and to make a good radio piece, some of my remarks about how swell the illustrations are got edited out, so I iterate the sentiments here. I understand the book is doing nicely, which makes me happy. You done a good job.
