How many people can say they’ve fulfilled their childhood dreams? Tomie dePaola can! When he was four he said he wanted to dance on stage and write and illustrate books. And he has! He’s written and/or illustrated more than 200 books, received practically every accolade a children’s book author can receive (including the Caldecott Honor Award for Strega Nona, the Newbery Honor Award for 26 Fairmount Avenue and the Smithson Medal from the Smithsonian Institution), been called a superstar in the field of children’s literature, and he’s not a bad tap dancer either!
The card security code is an added safeguard for your credit/debit card purchases. Depending on the type of card you use, it is either a three- or four-digit number printed on the back or front of your credit/debit card, separate from your credit/debit card number. To make shopping at The Literary Guild® Book Club even more secure, we require that you enter this number each time you make a credit/debit card purchase. Please note that your security code will not be stored with us even if you have saved your credit/debit card information.
