Just reading a little in my children’s literature book... I feel compelled to write books aimed at children and teenagers which promote self- and social acceptance and which counteract the superficiality of modern culture. You look on tv and there’s all this eMpTyV crap. Celebrity/pop icon blah and materialism. Maybe that’s a way to help change things. Target young people and challenge them to see the pointlessness of all that, give them something else to look at and think about. Maybe catch them before they lose their desire to read and think!
