"I liked those because they were short."

I'm always droning on about the adult wall between children and children's books--adults do all the writing, publishing, reviewing... You've heard me go on about this before.

Well, took a shot at knocking down that wall with A child looks at children's books by Andrew Oglesby (age 6). I think Andrew did very well and had some very illuminating things to say.

However, he may be learning a hard lesson in what happens when you bring your family members into your writing. "If grapes were alive, when they get old they would turn into raisins just like my Grandma and Grandpa and Nana."

I hope Grandma, Grandpa, and Nana are over this by Christmas.
