Funny and subversive.
The Baseball Player and the Walrus by Ben Loory
"This is Ben Loory's first children's book and I was curious how his normally adult storytelling would translate to that genre. Honestly, it translates perfectly and is still undeniably his unique voice! I so enjoyed Mr. Loory's short story collect..." Read more of this review »

Oh those illustrations!!
And the story, too, a beautiful one about kindness and even logic, which means in a way it's about story itself.. :)

Madeleine L'Engle
“You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.”
Madeleine L'Engle

Rebecca Stead
“Mom says each of us has a veil between ourselves and the rest of the world, like a bride wears on her wedding day, except this kind of veil is invisible. We walk around happily with these invisible veils hanging down over our faces. The world is kind of blurry, and we like it that way. But sometimes our veils are pushed away for a few moments, like there's a wind blowing it from our faces. And when the veil lifts, we can see the world as it really is, just for those few seconds before it settles down again. We see all the beauty, and cruelty, and sadness, and love. But mostly we are happy not to. Some people learn to lift the veil themselves. Then they don't have to depend on the wind anymore.”
Rebecca Stead, When You Reach Me
