There are those who believe that the value of a children's book can be measured only in terms of the moral lessons it tries to impose or the perfect role models it offers. Personally, I happen to think that a book is of extraordinary value if it gives the reader nothing more than a smile or two. In fact, I happen to think that's huge.
The perfect love affair is one which is conducted entirely by post.
George Bernard Shaw

D. H. Lawrence

Martin Luther King, Jr.
