Quote of the moment:
This site is like that movie "Timecop," except with a lot less Van Damme, and microscopically more sense-make.
Children's books should tackle more complicated subjects. They shouldn't just be empty collections of platitudes and lessons in being yourself. News flash: being yourself gets you nowhere!
So, naturally, when I write my own children's books, they scratch below the surface, but are still a jolly, fun-to-read adventure for the wee 'uns.
