Lewis Carroll
“You’re mad, bonkers, completely off your head. But I’ll tell you a secret. All the best people are.”
Lewis Carroll

Barbara Cooney
“I believe that children in this country need a more robust literary diet than they are getting. …It does not hurt them to read about good and evil, love and hate, life and death. Nor do I think they should read only about things that they understand. '…a man’s reach should exceed his grasp.' So should a child’s. For myself, I will never talk down to, or draw down to, children.

(from the author's acceptance speech for the Caldecott award)”
Barbara Cooney, Chanticleer and the Fox

Suzy  Davies
“Caring for dogs teaches kids observation skills, empathy and a sense of responsibility. Taking part in sport helps children cultivate physical strength, mental and physical resilience, self-esteem, delayed gratification, patience, courage, independence, leadership skills, good judgement and decision making, collaboration skills and a passion for teamwork. I have long held the belief that sport is worthwhile, and something that is often underestimated in the individual and team values it fosters. Who ever said that sporty types - girls included - do not like a fairy tale? Sport can be the beginning of a journey where children discover that they - and their team - whether dogs or humans, can create and fulfil their passions and their dreams”

Pamela Sampson
“Several years ago, I was invited to deliver a lecture on art and literature to the Tinworth Historical Society. While searching in the attic for a treatise of mine written during my student days at the Sorbonne, I came upon a large, dust-and-cobweb-covered trunk bearing the initials W.W. which I had never before noticed. Inside were stacks of paper tied in neat bundles and a large quantity of fascinating memorabilia - faded flowers, old invitations, scraps of satin, velvet and lace, postage stamps, jewelry, postcards from foreign capitals. The variety was endless. As I examined several bundles of paper more carefully, I realized I was holding a collection of drawings by Amelia Woodmouse, a promising young artist and a member of the family who had lived in the house at the turn of the century. From the delightful portraits and paintings depicting the life around her, and the accumulation of personal mementos, it was obvious that the artist had begun her collection in order to compile a family album, which for some reason, sadly, she never completed.”
Pamela Sampson

C.S. Lewis

Kairi Look
“Oli nii külm, et isegi lumekakud läksid puuõõnde sooja. Maja taga lõdises kuuskümmend lumememme ja ootas sula, et ujuda lõunasse. Õue minnes jäätusid silmamunad. Jääkarud saatsid kaastundeavalduse ja konserve.”
Kairi Look, Piia Präänik ja bandiidid

“Crouching sadly beneath the bush, all of Forethought’s excitement began to drain away. He was in the act of turning around when he heard a little buzzing voice say, 'Don’t stop now! Just keep going. You’re almost their rabbit!”
Bobby B-Bobby, Just Keep Going Rabbit

“Why are you so sad Fluffytail?” asked Mr. Alligator.
Fluffytail was very surprised since no one else had ever asked him this question. “I’m new in town and searching for friends, but no one wants to be my friend. This makes me afraid to start a new school,” Fluffytail said. “I think it’s my fluffy tail.”
“Don’t worry little one. I am also different from all the other alligators in this pond. I was born with only half of a tail and I have many good friends.”
Marvin Bowen, Adventures of the Fluffytail Mouse

“When I’m nervous about how things will be …
I close my eyes and put my hand on my heart …
And I know that everything I could need is already there inside of me.” - The One and Only Sparkella”

“He ran out into the garden, now brilliant with sudden sun, and for just a few minutes before the drops vanished they hung like diamonds on every twig. Then, as the sun drew up the moisture, the air was scented, so that Tolly could hardly bear to let his breath out. It seemed a waste. He was looking for scented flowers, but the strongest and most exciting smell of all was the earth itself. Really, what a thing to live on!”
Lucy M. Boston, The Chimneys of Green Knowe

Elisa Pierandrei
“Ancora oggi il colore della pelle è un fattore di discriminazione per molti cittadini nel mondo. Le categorie etniche stabilite sulla base della melanina ci intrappolano in mondi che non riflettono la complessità della realtà in cui viviamo. Nel tentativo di decostruire questa narrazione, la pluripremiata fotografa Angélica Dass (n. 1979) ha realizzato Humanae, un progetto fotografico che è una collezione di ritratti in cui classifica i diversi colori della pelle umana. Mette in discussione il concetto di razza e le categorie limitate che usiamo per descriverci, raccontando così la società contemporanea e le nuove generazioni.”
Elisa Pierandrei
