I Love Reading About Margaret Wise Brown

Margaret Wise Brown's eccentricities are not news to me. I do think, though, using her as the basis for an argument that she was childlike in some way and that childish writers may write better children's books, as Katie Roiphe does in Do Childish People Write Better Children's Books, is a bit of a stretch.

I have to admit, I don't actually understand Goodnight Moon. But I've read it out loud a lot, and I buy it regularly for expectant parents.
