What a succinct snapshot of Hoff’s life and work!

marjorie ingall says:

Awesome piece — wish I could see the show!

Tom Bachtell says:

Great piece on one of my greatest influences and inspirations. I was not aware of Syd Hoff’s “Daily Worker” connection.

Syd Hoff’s easy readers are popular and well-read here in L.A. libraries. I still find his illustrations comforting and the stories simple and charming.

BURT SCHALL says:

Thunder Over The Bronx!!! So evocative I can still taste the schmaltz herring.

Maybe he’s forgotten because he lived in Miami instead of NYC and couldn’t network with all the right people?

Wendy Leibowitz says:

Syd Hoff’s books are so timeless. Danny and the Dinosaur, Sammy the Seal, “Who Will Be My Friend?”–they all hold up so well. They even showed a few faces of color–rare back when he wrote and illustrated. I love his books and my daughter does, too. I was thrilled to read of his Daily Worker connection. Please continue to publish articles like this, and I thank the Miami-Dade Library for their exhibit devoted to him!
