Hey, re your pages for Sesame Street Finding Out Encyclopedia (a great find). Do you have any handy where you can check the contributor credits? Worldcat lists Sue Branch "and others" for illustration (and Carlisle "and others" for writing), suggesting that like The Sesame Street Treasury series and ilk, there were different contributors for different sections.
If you still have access and have time to check, it would help a lot. Thanks!
Also, from that same year, there was apparently also a My Favourite Words Encyclopedia from same publisher and same contributors mostly. From the sound of it (like when The Sesame Street Dictionary was later split into volumes), it might be much (or some) of the same material in one book, if it ever surfaces.
I just got a full set of these in English. I updated the cover images last night but I haven't checked the credits yet. I might get to that tomorrow night, so let me know if there's anything else you want to mine from these.
Hooray! Scott, do any of the illustrations (especially the double spreads) have artist signatures the way the US Sesame Street Library and such usually did? Looking at the names, I've found backgrounds for some but a relevant pic would be nice. For others (Sue Branch and writer George Short), there's nothing beyond this contribution, so sans a picture to identify their style or work, they'll likely need to be delinked.
Also, ooh: Mari Szmichowska seems to be Marie Szmichowska, who was an animator in England, working on a couple outsourced Hanna-Barbera shows and features like Watership Down. Naturally that makes me happy.
Also also, I do have a content request now: Frazzle and Herry making paper dolls in the D Volume. Not sure how useful it will be to the Wiki, but it sounds adorable.
Just a head's up, something weird happened on this one. From the history you can see that the categories were added multiple times. It's probably because the gallery tag wasn't closed. Should be all set now.
