Gaiman on books for children


Most children are very very good at deciding what they are ready for and what not. And children are mostly the best judge of things. I’m reminded of the Danish journalist, she was reading „Coraline“ to her son. She started getting really scared, and her son said „don\’t worry, mom, it\’s only a story!“ Adults find the book more disturbing than kids do, because it’s a different genre of story: When an adult is reading it, he reads about a child in danger. When a child reads it, they are reading about a child having an adventure. It’s a different point of view.
