A quote worth remembering…

“My fears about writing for children are great– one can so easily slip into a cheap sort of whimsy or cuteness. I don’t trust myself in this treacherous field unless I am running a degree of fever.”

~EB White to Anne Carroll Moore (pulled from Leonard Marcus’ “Minders of Make Believe)

    That’s a great quote! And that was the exact same cover art that was on my childhood copy of Stuart Little…which I adored.

    What an amazing quote. And my copy looks just like that one…complete with the tattered edges. {{sigh…}}} How I love the feel and smell of my childhood books.
