My children are 8 and 10 years old and they have books that they read to themselves and each other and then books that I read to them. I love David Almond. It's so wonderful to find a children's/young adults' writer that is actually enjoyable to read out loud to your kids. I find that most childrens' books have interesting or fun stories but horrible, or at best inoffensive, writing styles. David Almond's words are bewitching. In this climate of tablets and widespread ADD, I cannot describe the relief of seeing my children's faces, rapt, their eyes distant, hanging onto Mr. Almond's every word. THANK GOD FOR DAVID ALMOND. I do.
