Article on Buffett’s co-author Helen Bransford

May 24th, 2007

The East Hampton Star has an article on Helen Bransford, illustrator and co-author with Jimmy on his next book “Swine Not?”, due out November 27th:

“Swine Not” follows the adventures of Rumpy the pig and friends, including the pigeolantes (pigeon vigilantes) who “watch the airspace in the city, to prevent animals from falling out windows.” Like Forky, Rumpy is forced to live undercover in an apartment, only venturing outside when well disguised as a dog or when wearing her favorite pink wig.

“I was staying at Jane and Jimmy’s,” she said, referring to Mr. Buffett and his wife. “Jimmy said, ‘Let me read it, and took it on his sailboat overnight.’ The next day he told me he wanted to edit it and add layers.
