For my Georgia fans attending the Decatur Book Festival next weekend, I’ll be doing my presentation on Saturday (8/30) at the Target Children’s stage at 5:00pm. The day should be quite exciting with many wonderful children’s book creators also presenting like Chris Rashka, Robert Sabuda, Doreen Cronin and Adam Rex to name a few. You can check out the full schedule here.

Bring your books to get signed and I’ll seeya there!

Never Abandon Imagination Tony DiTerlizzi: Never abandon imagination.

Imagination is a world of possibility that exists within each of us. It is what makes us uniquely human. It is our creative fingerprint that touches and influences the world around us. Imagination is essential to art and science; to innovation and prosperity. It gives us hope, calls us to action and leads to change.

Whether it’s fairies, dragons, robots or aliens, all of my children’s book characters are siblings born of my imagination – an imagination strengthened through years of encouragement from family, teachers and friends. While so many others abandoned it during their transition from childhood to adulthood, I fiercely held onto mine, hoping for a day when I could share it to inspire the next generation of dreamers. Innovators. World changers.

Imagination empowers us to envision and create a reality of what could be. We must hold it dear, foster it and never abandon it.
