Why it’s fun to write for teens as well as adults

- Because you get a letter from three six graders in Nebraska who tell you that are going to write your biography, make a poster for you, and dress as characters from your books - and one is even going to dress as you!

- Because you get a letter from an 11-year-old in Georgia who thinks you are as cool as you thought Roald Dahl was when you were 11.

- Because you get a note from a girl in Tennessee that says, “I just finished reading Girl, Stolen. ... I enjoyed the book very much. So much that during school I would sit in the back of the class and read under the desk.Thank you for making my geography class much more interesting!”

I’ve never even been to Georgia or Nebraska, and I was only in Tennessee once for a business meeting. All I saw was the airport, the meeting room, and the hotel.

It was hard to think of something that really distinguished me for the person who was going to dress as me. Curly hair and sweat pants?
