There are some themes, some subjects too large for adult fiction; they can only be dealt with adequately in a children’s book.
– Phillip Pullman
Many times people assume that just because it’s a children’s book that it cannot have depth or meaning. Of course, this isn’t the case because a children’s book can still contain messages and complex thoughts that often may be overlooked in an adult book. It’s the perfect place to discuss a subject that otherwise may have been viewed as ‘taboo’ or too sensitive.
