You know what tuck everlasting would be? A great studio ghibli film. It has all the key points of one:
- lots of nature
- a spunky young girl as the protagonist
- vague magical happenings
- a power hungry old man as the villain
- darkness hidden by a whimsical setting
- an out of nowhere climax
- a weird and anticlimactic ending
“When conversation with a pupil turned to Harry Potter, the prime minister said: ‘I’ve read them all. They are all very good.’ But she became weirdly stand-offish when The Telegraph’s Jack Maidment asked her a follow-up question about the HP universe"
And then it goes on about how people are comparing her to Umbridge then it finishes with…
"It’s unclear why Mrs May wouldn’t answer the question. But surely she wasn’t covering up that she lied to the child about having read J. K. Rowling’s books, because politicians never lie. Ahem.”
pathologization is so dependent on culture too… in some west african cultures arm flapping is literally a nonlinguistic expressive norm and its considered disrespectful to make direct eye contact….these arent symptoms i even ever had but they are like textbook symptoms of autism for children and its like.. big pharma needs to read a book
I want Jack Zimmermann, after having retired from a long and lucrative career in the NHL, to become a children’s author.
Because he tells these amazingly entertaining and funny stories to his kids at bedtime.
Bitty loves them and encourages him to write down those stories.
After it comes up during a conversation that Jack has turned to writing, Lardo offers to illustrate.
So, Jack starts off writing about what he knows: hockey
His first book is about Bittle Bunny, who joins a hockey team and has to put up with his grumpy wolf teammate. In the end, both Bittle Bunny and the wolf learn to play fair and work together. It actually has a great message about teamwork, sportsmanship, and learning to trust people
The book gets published and it becomes a HIT with the literary community.
So, Jack writes more about Bittle Bunny, but slowly adds in more characters to this universe.
He also starts addressing other issues such as anxiety, fear, isolation, friendship, conflict, etc. in his stories
Jack gets lots of positive feedback from people, especially parents and
teachers. They thank him because his books are used to help children understand these emotions and social situations. His stories have helped open up a lot of difficult discussions.
Jack is an amazing storyteller.
Jack not only becomes one of the greatest Canadian hockey players, but he’s also one of the most beloved children’s authors of the decade.
Jack Zimmermann’s name becomes as well known to Canadian children and librarians as Robert Munsch, Paulette Bourgeois, Phoebe Gilman, and Marie-Louise Gay.

“I can’t remember, I used to read so many books. Many of the books were a series of short stories - I remember one had a dog like Milou on the cover, but I can’t remember its name. I liked The Little Prince too, it’s a children’s book but I was 14 or 15 when I read it.”
