So last week sometime, I was working on (yet another) Really Annoying Week Issue for my projects here. 

I found myself thinking of Seven Days from Sunday, which was always kicking around GG's house.  I haven't seen it around lately, so I went to find it: http://books.google.com/books?id=0tMEAQAAIAAJ&q=seven+days+from+sunday&dq=seven+days+from+sunday.  Sadly, it's no preview.

Minuteman? Nope.

OK, Find in a Library.  Sure enough, Harvard's got it.  But wait! There's more!  Per WorldCat: " illustrated by Don Freeman."  Um, would that be the Don Freeman who wrote/illustrated the Corduroy books?  Darn.  No easy way to find out in Google Books (it doesn't even *list* an illustrator, much less link same).  Though a bit of digging gets me the answer: yes. 

FURTHER perusal of that link yields another surprise: 1945 James Thurber, The White Deer, Harcourt-Brace

And from the snippets view, that's the edition I have.  (Yes, I've read it enough that I recognize the typeface from that tiny bit.)  How the heck did I not know this before?

*boggle*
