I'm not a fan of fantasy, but this novel, with its clever blending of history with fantasy, won me over. It's one of the best books I've read in some time, and I expect it to be part of the Newbery discussions.

“The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be.”
Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt: Hitchhiking the Galaxy One Last Time

“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.”
Mother Teresa

“I love revision. Where else can spilled milk be turned into ice cream?”
Katherine Paterson

“Think of the sound you make when you let go after holding your breath for a very, very long time. Think of the gladdest sound you know: the sound of dawn on the first day of spring break, the sound of a bottle of Coke opening, the sound of a crowd cheering in your ears because you're coming down to the last part of a race--and you're ahead. Think of the sound of water over stones in a cold stream, and the sound of wind through green trees on a late May afternoon in Central Park. Think of the sound of a bus coming into the station carrying someone you love.
Then put all those together.”
Gary D. Schmidt, The Wednesday Wars

“There was a moment when I changed from an amateur to a professional. I assumed the burden of a profession, which is to write even when you don't want to, don't much like what you're writing, and aren't writing particularly well.”
Agatha Christie, An Autobiography
