Letter Art, AlphaBooks: N is for Newsum

Milton
Gillian Newsum
Kennilworth 1991

Not what you might think. I’ve owned the book since before my Milton was born. Because of the jumper Milton, I was concerned about keeping the name for a Canadian racehorse also named Milton. I was told not to worry. Only the old farts would remember.
