it was amazing

Read in December, 1998

My college girlfriend had thing for Tibet. What college girlfriend worth her weight in salt doesn't? Wandering through a Borders one boring, Pennsylvania night we stumbled into the children's section and she found this book.

I've never liked children's book, a fact I chalk up to being considerably younger than my siblings. At any rate, when I saw Sis's book, I thought "where was this when I was little?" I'd have love it. It's remarkably complex, both in its illustrations and text. It's a book with teeth that one can fall into and get lost for days. I can think of no better compliment.

In fact, Tibet Through the Red Box is the reason I started making children's books.
