I drove by the Lawton Public Library on Friday night to see the brand new mural that they commissioned from the Shaw Brothers.  This mural is epic.  It features stars from some of the best books around, and I knew all of them except one!


Books have always been an escape for me, beginning at a really age, when my grandmother would read to us when we went to visit her in Georgia.  They only had 3 channels on television (rabbit ears), and my grand dad would listen to Braves baseball on the radio.  Yep, I am old.  But my love of books is old too.  The first book I remember being really lost in was Mark Twain's 'The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn'.  I remember that we just laughed and some of the trouble ole Huck got into. I read all of the 'Little House on the Prairie' books too.  Then the 'Flowers in the Attic' series as well.

The mural at the Lawton Public Library celebrates classic books and book series too. But, I just can't for the life of me figure who the blue cat with glasses is.  Someone help me out!  Of course, Gandolf from the 'Hobbit' and 'Lord of the Rings', Tiggar and Eyore from 'Winnie the Pooh' were pretty easy, as were 'Tarzan', 'Sherlock Holmes' and 'Frankenstein', even the more recent titles like 'Black Panther' and 'Harry Potter' series were included in the mural.  But that darn cat!
