The big Orange Splot was my kids favorite book when they were little. We’ve often joked that they were raised to be like Plumbeam, to go for their dreams, and be original, and now that they’re grown, I can tell you they are.
My daughter has traveled the country taking pictures to build a portfolio to realize her dream of being a photographer.
My son is married and expecting their first child, and he recently got a new tattoo on his wrist… yes… it’s the big orange splot!
I’d love to send you a picture of it, if you’d like to see it.
Thank You for years of reading!

Tattoos make me nervous. I always think, ""What if they get tired of the subject, (in this case splot). Does this mean they will stop reading books by me lest the find another favorite and have to have that tattooed too?"" But I do appreciate the honor.
