Bill Peet and Me?

Pamela Camel belonged to the Brinkerhoff Brothers Big Top Circus a long time ago. So starts the story by the famous Disney story-man Bill Peet. After helping craft many classics like 101 Dalmatians, Sword in the Stone and Jungle Book, Peet parted company not on the best of terms. He quickly started a new career as author/illustrator of many beloved children’s books. Now my question is who did Peet know from the Brinkerhoff family? It’s not a name one just thinks up. Thanks Jim for bringing this to my attention.

Hey Ya Joel!

You should check out the biography of Bill Pete if you haven't already. It's wonderfuly illustrated and is his life from his perspective.

Great to see your staying busy and doing well.
