Okay, so apparently the author of Stone Fox, John R. Gardiner, died March 4 of pancreatitis and we are just now learning about it (well, I am at least). I own two copies of that book. That’s right; not one, but two. This is a big loss for me, and I’m sure a big loss for those who were avid children’s book readers. I was (still am) a voracious consumer of children’s stories. One day I’ll be a father; the first or maybe the second book I will read to my son or daughter will be Stone Fox.
