congratulations on the birth of the best little novel that ever walked on two feet. ......a baby book I believe.
my name is kevin walsh and i'm a mural painter in Baltimore, Maryland. I just painted this eighty five foot long dragon mural at the Towson library in Baltimore. it is consistently voted one of the U.S.'s top ten libraries and as you can see its covered with books not scales. I donated this dragon which to date has taken just shy of three hundred hours to paint inside the main rotunda of the library. at this stage of the project I am covering as much of this dragon as I can with classic books, the public domain books that is. recently as I have begun this journey many members of the library staff and many of the thousands of people coming through the library have requested their favorite books to be added. Neil, your name keeps popping up. I know you are a big fan of libraries......and as of earlier this week I sent out a request to Jonathan Carroll to put one of his books on the dragon and he was all too kind to oblige me with one of his books to be painted on the tail of this behemoth. I know you are a big fan of his so I am requesting your permission to paint one of your books upon this mighty beast if you'd be so kind. my apologies if I have inconvenienced you requesting this here....but I do have a dozen requests for a Neil Gaiman book to be added and thought you'd share this wall with the classics in literature, Moby Dick, Dracula, Tales of Edgar Allen Poe, the Ilead, a Tale of Two Cities, the War of the Worlds, the Wizard of Oz and so on........thank you kindly, your faithful reader. kw
