Supposedly the money was held in trust, so there now has to be a court case over who gets the money. I guess the grumpy little bugger didnt even leave a will. :)

Hope God has a formula 1 circuit up there. I feel sure James Hunt will want a rematch.

Judith Kerr, the author and illustrator whose debut picture book The Tiger Who Came to Tea introduced generations of pre-school children to the joyful chaos of uncontrolled appetites, has died at the age of 95 .

Kerr, who dreamed up the tiger to amuse her two children, only started publishing in her 40s, and lived to see the Tiger reach its millionth sale as she turned 94. To her mild chagrin, it remained her best loved single book: “I’ve got better at drawing, obviously,” she told one interviewer.

Over a 50-year career she published more than 30 further books, immortalising a succession of family cats through the naughty but lovable Mog, and bringing to life her family’s flight across Europe as the Nazis came to power in the novel When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit.

Last week, she was named illustrator of the year at the British Book Awards, although she didn’t attend the ceremony. A new book, The Curse of the School Rabbit, described as a “laugh-out story of a boy, a rabbit, and a lot of bad luck”, will be published in June; Kerr told the Observer in an interview last week, that her greatest fear was “not being able to work”. 

Kerr was born in 1923 into the intelligentsia of interwar Berlin, where her father Alfred was a leading theatre critic and newspaper columnist and her mother Julia was a talented composer. As a Jew and an outspoken critic of the rising Nazi party, Alfred Kerr was a marked man, whose notoriety forced the family to leave Germany in 1933, fleeing first to Switzerland and then France, before settling in England three years later.

This journey was at the centre of When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit, which was published in 1971, the first in a trilogy of semi-autobiographical novels. In Pink Rabbit, her alter ego Anna muses on the cost to children of having famous parents and watches her mother struggle with knitting and scrambling eggs after being deprived of a maid for the first time in her previously cosseted life. The second volume, released four years later, describes their narrow escape when the down-at-heel Bloomsbury hotel in which they are staying is bombed.

Met Bart Starr at the Atlantic City Airport back in the 70s. My dad recognized him and spoke to him. He came over and spoke to my brother and I and sent us signed photographs (they did that kind of thing for free back then). He was a very kind gentleman.
