Personal Quote:

The Mary Poppins books by PL Travers stayed with me. A lot of the ones that stayed with me are the ones I've actually discovered that as an adult I could go back and re-read, discovering they are still great books. PL Travers is such a fantastic writer. So smart and invested so much for kids. Another is CS Lewis. See more »
