Take a look at the upcoming Pamela Paul essay on the back page—she's talking about Sendak, Silverstein, Dr. Seuss, and rule breaking. Listen, then, if you have the time, to the podcast slipped in alongside the story. In it Adam Gopnick and Pamela Paul discuss, among other things, the ideal reviewer of children's books; what qualifies anyone to have an opinion? Sam Tannehaus asks good questions. He elicits some really smart answers.
I just sat here in the dark listening to the recording all the way through.
I'm going to stand up now, feeling heartened.
