  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
