Is that the same thing?”
I was puzzled. But he kept going, “I asked my mom if you want to see them.” My mom had drawn a little drawing for him. They were very, very similar. He handed them to me.
“Do you know?” he said. “They’re really, really funny.” He pointed at that drawing. “Here’s a pencil drawing.” He pointed to it. “That’s ‘Puff! Puff! Puff!’.”
I hadn’t been able to draw a “Puff! Puff! Puff!” at all.
I asked him, “Why do they sound like “Puff!” and “Puff!”?” His answer made no sense.
“I think they’re fun to draw,” he said.
On another day there was a big thunderstorm and the house got flooded. I was drawing them because I knew the neighbors would love them. So I made a drawing from the flooded house that’s about two feet high and has a cartoon dog hanging from the ceiling. They didn’t look much like my drawings so I asked him to see whether my drawings were as good as his.
“Well,” he said, “you got me.”
I didn’t know what to make of him. Maybe he hadn’t given them much thought. Maybe they looked different because I’d made them with paper. One day I told him that my drawings were better than his cartoon drawings, and he said “Yeah, I’ll buy them.”
I told him I’d be glad to sell them but I just didn’t have enough pages left. The day before he got sick he wrote to me.
My husband died.
I told him, “You’ll have the last copy of this book”
“It’s all right,” he said. “But I want to take this book as far as it may go.”
“Well, I’ll give it to you,” I said. “And you’re going to put it in your desk.” That would keep it away from the children (who would see my drawings, and the way my husband drew them, and wonder why the dog was sticking out of the top of the window). In a few years I’ll be dead.
I had an idea on the plane about where to put the new book, but I couldn’t figure out what to call it. I said, “It’s called ‘The Drawing Book
