Stephen Covey, author of The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, has died after doing something he clearly was not very effective at: riding a bike.

A brief reading of Sendak's various obituaries revealed that Else Holmelund Minarik, the Danish-born author of the Little Bear series, which Sendak illustrated, is still around at the age of 91.

Can't find any health on her, but she's been retired since 1989 and might be a good idea for the DeathList next year.



Scratch that, she's dead.

And with her, Sobol, and Sendak dead any motivation for me making a Children's Book author theme team dies too.

Bond, Beverly Cleary, Richard Adams, and Eric Carle were all ideas I wrote down. I could stretch the definition a bit to include Sir Terry Pratchett and Harper Lee.

It's a moot point though, I have other theme teams put together that were much easier to make and more entertaining.
