123 by Hanna Little, 2004: "One of my friends works at Type Books, a classic indie bookstore in Toronto, and on certain days of the week this woman Miss Hanna reads stories to kids there in the basement. She’s in her 70s or 80s and lives down the same street. One day I was looking around and sure enough, there was this children’s book Miss Hanna had made and self-published. She probably does it at Kinkos, this little spiral-bound thing with a plastic cover.”
