Quote of the Week

Posted in Quote of the Week tagged at 12:25 pm by Van Aaron Hughes

Making fiction for children, making books for children, isn’t something you do for money. It’s something you do because what children read and learn and see and take in changes them and forms them, and they make the future. They make the world we’re going to wind up in, the world that will be here when we’re gone.

Which sounds preachy but it’s true. I want to tell kids important things, and I want them to love stories and love reading and love finding things out. I want them to be brave and wise. So I write for them.

Neil Gaiman
