It sounds like a wonderful experience, especially with A. K. Dewdney himself. Similar in a way to meeting Alan Kay where Squeak is concerned. Your students are very fortunate.

I guess it is not a coincidence that this book is part of the culture that informs Squeak learning.
I'd be interested in a similar collaborative project between our classes perhaps next school year. Perhaps we could involve other schools as well. I ordered the book, the annotated version and Flatlanders as well a couple nights ago. Good March break
reading I hope.
Thanks for sharing.

>& 5th grade class in San Jose.  He was delighted and flew down to meet with the children.
