Guys Reading!

September 23, 2009


My good friend, and Ambassador of Children’s Literature, Jon Scieszka, has launched a brand new website devoted to books aimed for boys. The site ties in with his 2005 “boys reading” anthology titled Guys Read – which yours truly contributed to. Hey, I even offer up some of my childhood favorites for others to enjoy. Check it out.

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.
