about this book: When I was very young, someone gave my mother a dozen or so boxes of books. As far as I know, my mother never read any of those books. She used them to prop up our bed frame for a while. It didn't work very well because the books were always shifting and the bed was always collapsing. Because I seemed to have been born with an insatiable hunger for reading, I had a different use for the books. Tolstoy, Freud, Dickens – I didn't care what the books were about or who the author was. I gradually read my way through each and every one of them. This heavy reading material, fortunately, was balanced out by what I call the Blue Books. They had been my mother's books when she was a child. They were filled with fairytales, folktales and old-fashioned illustrations. These books were magical to me. They still fascinate me.

I wrote The Meadow and the Millpond because I believe that it is important for children to have books to read. It opens the world up to them. The stories in the Meadow and the Millpond are probably a little more entertaining to a child's mind than War and Peace or Mein Kampf.
