The diCamillo Code

The Miraculous Journey of Edwardy Tulane
by Kate diCamillo

While we're busy cracking The dePaola Code, if anyone feels like searching for clues in the works of Kate diCamillo, feel free to take over The diCamillo Code.

We've tried, but we're having a hard time finding any religious symbolism in her stories.

On a fairly recent episode of Sesame Street that I watched with my son, Grover visits Poland where his friends are making scarecrows. Frankly, each scarecrow does look as though it is being crucified, so the illustration might not be as symbolic of Christ as it is representative of a certain type of scarecrow installation.

Just a thought. I haven't looked at the illustrator's other works.

It's funny, I had never thought of scarecrows as looking crucified before.


From now on, every time I enter my garden, I'll feel compelled to make the sign of the cross.

I seriously dislike Tulane. And this picture :)
