That's lovely!  Although I take some issue with her statement
"True, they are technically 'young adult', but I don't see how
they have to be only young adult, as the stories are interesting
to everyone." Or rather, I think that's true about most young
adult literature and a fair amount of children's literature. I
wish adults pushing children's books didn't feel the need to
write apologias, explaining how this particular book transcends
its intended audience. What it reveals, sadly, is ignorance about
the accessibility of young adult and children's books to adults.

-deborah, who thinks that on average, children's and young adult
books are better written than adult
