BALLADS is an ongoing series by Vess, where he invites guest authors 
to write the scripts based on classic ballads, which he then 
illustrated. I have the first collected volume, which is great. My 
favorite is Jane Yolen's take on "King Henry" where she ties the 
story to Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII. Lots of fun.

That can't be true about de Lint in the Ohio system. He's a pretty 
popular author, and published by major publishing houses. Try looking 
under titles!
