Message:  Believe it or not, we are still working on it. At first Mickey had thought we could do a set with other songwriters contributing one children's song. Unfortunately, they all want creative control. That's not going to happen.

The hardest part of the project is finding illustrators. Those who have the level of talent that matches Mickey's lyrics also want creative control, except for Ted. Mickey may not be here right now, but he is still in control.

The songs he wanted to include were Mobile Leah, Goodnight, Little Blue Robin, The Prophet, A Father's Prayer, and a few others. Not traditional children's stories, but with the right illustrations they could be both children's and adult books. It's a dream, and sometimes dreams don't die......
