My work in books, films and talks lies almost wholly with children, and I have very little time to give to grown-ups.
Writing for children is an art in itself, and a most interesting one.
I am not really much interested in talking to adults, although I suppose practically every mother in the kingdom knows my name and my books. It's their children I love.
I have written, probably, more books for children than any other writer, from story-books to plays, and can claim to know more about interesting children than most.
If one can judge from the letters that I receive, it would seem that there are many thousands of children who would like me to speak or to read to them.
