As a kid, Abe Lincoln was very much into his books.

Final art for "Stand Tall, Abe Lincoln", written Judith St. George, illus.d by me and publ.d by Phylomel/Penguin&Putnam. Abe was very much into his books. His reading habit was very much supported by his bonus mother, Sarah. She kept him supplied and kept his father off his back when the knucklehead insisted that chores were more important than education.
