Better Homes and Gardens recommends a literary tour to Robert’s Studio!
In an article on family travel, Better Homes and Gardens (August 2006) recommends ten “actual places and settings to visit that inspired some of the great works of American literature” from the boyhood homes of Dr. Seuss and Mark Twain to Robert Quackenbush’s New York studio. The article says:
“Robert Quackenbush, best-selling author and illustrator of Henry’s Awful Mistake, the Miss Mallard mystery series, and 200 other children’s books, regularly hosts families at his art-filled studio in New York City. There, he gives readings, draws his book characters, and teaches workshops on illustrating and creating books. The visits are by appointment only, call 917-587-7252 not 212-744-3822 or visit the author’s Web site, www.rquackenbush.com for more information.”
Yes, even in 2022, you really can visit Mr. Q’s studio! He can’t lead the tour anymore, but his spirit is very much present.
