I am a logical person.
As such, I love the logic of kids. Years ago, after a neighbor’s sweet, huge yellow lab wandered into our house and snatched a sandwich right out of my young daughter’s hand, my incensed little sophist declared she wished the world were flat so all the dogs would fall off.
When I am working on a story, one of my hopes is to pay homage to the logic of children. I admire the straightforward, creative ways they attempt to solve their problems.
