“When the ship of life enters a storm, not everyone can go to the side and throw up. Someone has to steer the ship to calmer waters. If not everyone drowns in despair.”
Keith Hegarty

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
