I mean, it’s amazing! You can be an author and no one will know that about you, but then they find one of your books and the whole world changes!

I posted a few photos of an exhibition on children’s books in Finchingfield, a little village in Essex, that the local children put on last summer. Head over to the blogpost to see more.

Adorable.

The best morals kids get from any book is just the capacity to empathize with other people, to care about the characters and their feelings. So you don’t have to write a preachy book to do that. You just have to make it a fun book with characters they care about, and they will become better people as a result.
