My partner has an acquaintance, a 10-year-old girl who is very bright.
She likes fantasy. I've recommended DWJ, of course, but any suggestions
are welcome. [I also recommended Nesbit, Lewis, Baum, Jansson, and Pratchett.]
She is also mixed-race*, so if anybody knows a particularly good author
for that, tell me. [I'm loaning her _The Wizard of Earthsea_.] It would be
nice to have protagonists who aren't just white.
Garth Nix just occurred to me. And Diane Duane.
*Her father is African-American, her mother is European-American.
People say nothing rhymes with orange,
but it doesn't.
