Richard Scarry
“There are all kinds of writers. The best writers write children's books.”
Richard Scarry, Richard Scarry's Busy, Busy Town

“I am still a bit mad at you for kidnapping me and putting our children's lives in danger."

"There's no how-to manual for parenting, Oggie. I'm doing the best I can.”
C. Alexander London, We Dine With Cannibals

Polly Horvath
“We read a lot of books. Children's books mostly, because they're always much more truthful than adult books. And much more entertaining," said Mrs. Bunny.”
Polly Horvath, Mr. and Mrs. Bunny--Detectives Extraordinaire!

Gary D. Schmidt
“I almost cried. But I didn't, because if you're in seventh grade and you cry while wearing a blue floral cape and yellow tights with white feathers on the butt, you just have to curl up and die somewhere in a dark alley.”
Gary D. Schmidt, The Wednesday Wars

“Jem tugged the floral curtains open just above Mum's bed. She stretched and said, "Oh!" because there is something especially cosy about pulling open floral curtains in your camper van and finding the Mediterranean Sea shining hundreds of feet below you and seabirds twirling all around you. Especially if the kettle has just boiled.”
Frank Cottrell Boyce, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Flies Again
