I love answering kids’ questions. Even the ones about how old I am. (97.) But the question I get asked nearly every place I go is one I really hate to answer. It’s the “what’s your favorite book that you’ve written?” question.
Here is what I say: “That is like asking your mom, ‘Mom? Who’s your favorite kid? If you’re an only child, it shouldn’t be too hard for your mom to answer that question. But otherwise. . .” I know kids think I’m being cheesy/weasely, but I really don’t have a favorite. I mean, if you’re going to spend a year or more working a book, you’ve really got to love it, right?
How do you answer this question?
