There's been a blogging storm recently over Martin Amis' famous dismissal of children's literature on the program Faulks on Fiction.
Here's what Amis said. "People ask me if I ever thought of writing a children's book." "If I had a serious brain injury I might well write a children's book, but otherwise the idea of being conscious of who you're directing the story to is anathema to me, because, in my view, fiction is freedom and any restraints on that are intolerable."
"I would never write about someone that forced me to write at a lower register than what I can write," he added.

Hi, I'm Sheryl and I'm mad about kids' books. I read them, write them, review them and buy way too many of them to fit into my tiny house! In short, I am addicted. So, if you have an addiction too, check out some of the titles I've reviewed. Check back often, for more reviews. And, if it's quiet for a while, come back later. It probably just means I'm on the road visiting schools and libraries or don't have my laptop along to post.
