How old is your "baby", Melissa? (I'm still the baby and I'm 42...) (and oh
how I hate seeing that in cold hard typeface.)

What a lovely moment. I have just been chatting to a colleague about Louise
Fitzhugh and Ruth Manning-Sanders, two writers who have nothing in common
except for my passionate devotion to their books as a child. (I'd have been
passionately devoted to DWJ as a child too, except that I didn't read her
until I was 28 or so.)
