Willie was Different - 1961 - a children 's story, first published in McCall s magazine in 1967. It was later republished by Funk & Wagnalls as a book, but this edition is based on Rockwell 's original concept, complete with the color and monotone paintings he created for the story.
This was claimed to be a Rockwell. Two things: The artist's name has been cropped off and the style is also similar to Sundblom and several other artists of that era. So, with that being said, just a cool pic w/ artist unknown.
