Zilpha Keatley Snyder
“Nothing's real unless you want it to be, and anything can be real if you want it to enough; so real doesn't really mean anything.”
“Imagination is a great thing in long dull hours, but it's a real curse in a dark alley.”
“Eleven is just about the best age for almost anything.”
“It's such a wonderful feeling to watch a child discover that reading is a marvelous adventure rather than a chore. I know that many writers for children say they do not write specifically with a child audience in mind ... This isn't true for me. I am very aware of my audience. Sometimes I can almost see them out there reacting as I write. Sometimes I think, 'Oh, you're going to like this part.'”
Zilpha Keatley Snyder, U.S. children's writer, 3 time Newbery winner
(1927 - 2014)
