I've only read his children's literature. Loved the Frances books.

OMG! The only book I've ever read by him, and it's adult, is Riddley Walker, one of the greatest post-apocalyptics ever. I'm pretty sure my original printing from way-back-when is somewhere around the house, though I have the impression there were some kind of revised editions published later. I've been meaning to look for it and do a re-read for ages.

Oh I'm so sad to hear about that! His Frances books are so perfect. They teach without hitting kids over the head with some moral, are well-written, and have great illustrations.
