“The children's writer not only makes a satisfactory connection between his present maturity and his past childhood, he also does the same for his child-characters in reverse — makes the connection between their present childhood and their future maturity. That their maturity is never visibly achieved makes no difference; the promise of it is there.”
“... a good deal of childhood is strong stuff for adults and totally unsuitable for children.”
Philippa Pearce, English children's writer
(1920 - 2007)
