So sad. My boys LOVED that book. I probably read it fifty times and the last line got me every single time!

Someone told me that from an interview with him, he told them he hated writing children's fiction. Isn't that a surprise? For a guy who hated writing children's fiction...

Thanks for stopping by, Petre Pan. I heard--well, I didn't hear, I saw it on television--that he said he wasn't a children's book writer. He said he didn't set out to write children's books. It's just what he wrote.

I like that.
