Madeleine L'Engle
“The writer whose words are going to be read by children has a heavy responsibility. And yet, despite the undeniable fact that the children’s minds are tender, they are also far more tough than many people realize, and they have an openness and an ability to grapple with difficult concepts which many adults have lost. Writers of children’s literature are set apart by their willingness to confront difficult questions.”
Madeleine L'Engle, Dare To Be Creative!: A Lecture Presented At The Library Of Congress, November 16, 1983

“Always just a brainstorm away from our next disaster...”
Birgit Pratcher, June Bear Adventures: The Missing Pies
