In honor of my new status as a grandfather to baby Max, it is time to post
The Ballad of the Glonk
which is a children’s book that Patrick wrote in the 1960s, illustrated by Dan Christoffel. He told me he’d tried to get it published, but the editors of the day didn’t want stories of a single mother protecting her children without having a man coming in to rescue her.
The book uses a wide format with the artwork spanning two pages. I’m not sure how well it will render here, but I believe if you click on the individual images you can see them in greater detail. I believe I have the only physical copy, but I’m going to suggest a new publisher and will keep you posted if something comes of it.
Herewith I present…. The Ballad of the Glonk.
I’m the son of Patrick of Meadows.
