    The Brown Dog Books and Gifts is an intoxicating place to visit. There is no pressure to buy, but can't resist. Natacha & Emma are welcoming and friendly. This is the best independent bookstore in Vermont. Keep up the great work! See you soon! Edmund

  8. M. Aslett, Crozet

    Read 'the secret box' to my young lad last night. Loved it. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. I came across 'Museum Trip' last year and was very struck by it. Beautiful drawings, beautiful vision. Does Barbara sell any of her original drawings? Are they drawn by hand for that matter? Makes me want to take up drawing again they are so lovely. Malcolm X
