There are still several unpublished books, some fun ideas from Don's bubbling creativity. Roy hopes to publish or get them published in the near future.. Here is a taste below.
"Scandal on Scarecrow Row" was originally a puppet play that Don created for the Geddes and Martin Studios (Santa Barbara and later Monterey) in the 1950s. "Harry Scarey falls in love with Ann Tenna (pining on the rooftop) and gets running fire advice from Madame Pearl Nesta [the crow] on how to run the affairs of the heart." (Quote from Santa Barbara News-Press November 28, 1958. The story of Harry and Ann was never published, but the character of the crow was completely transformed into Cyrano the Crow, that was eventually published and has been recently newly reissued by Dover Books.
I have some illustrations for "Scandal" and a resumé of the story, but am looking for more material in case someone finds something!
"Cattiva" is the original story featured in the video "Storymaker" (now on YouTube) about a cat in Paris.  Roy has the complete color mockup and is working on a new ending to this story using some additional original illustrations by Don from Paris.
