 I just noticed that the book I illustrated,'No Easy Way' is up on Amazon and available everywhere next month. The title is apt as it was no easy way all the way through what  with all the research, the drawing painting, and unexpected life issues.I now have more baseball gear from the 1940s in my propfile and have listened to more vintage baseball broadcasts  than anyone save the archivists in Cooperstown! 
The Junior Library Guild of Ohio (I got an award, complete with a pin) and the Beverly Hills librarian in charge of children's books really liked it, and I am awaiting some response from Red Sox town.
Lucia Monfried was a terrific art director through all this , as was Irene Vandervoort, the designer. I hope the author Fred Bowen, and Ted Williams' ghost, are happy, too.

The cover looks great! I'll be reading this to my son as soon as I get a copy.

Awesome job Senor Pyle . Its times like these where I wish I could've looked over your shoulder while you painted this awesome painting.

i just noticed that your baseball book came out a month before my baseball book. i'm just giddy about that fact.

of course, i'm also well that i have a long way to go before even being anywhere near as good as you.
