Author Bill Wallace has died. I liked his books a lot as a kid – after reading Watchdog and the Coyotes, I doodled coyotes inspired by the book on all my school assignments for, like, a year. I also did an oil painting once, as a pre-teen, of a scene from his book Snot Stew (which is not at all about what it sounds like). And poor Mr. Wallace was only sixty-four. He will be missed.
