"You have to write whichever book it is that wants to be written. And then, if it's going to be too difficult for grown-ups, you write it for children."

--Madeleine L'Engle

Dear Madeleine:

You were and are the reason for my belief that children's literature is an eternal, incredible genre that, at least to my mind, can be so much richer and deeper and funnier and sadder and more complex than any adult fiction out there. I can't think of any writer who so brilliantly illustrated principles of science, humanity, and God for me--all at the same time and starting when I was ten.

Thank you for everything.

<3 Me
