On this morning’s TODAY show, Al Roker revealed that the next choice for his “Al’s Book Club” segment was none other than The Search for WondLa! To say that I am stunned, excited, over-the-moon and thrilled would be an understatement. Wow.

The segment is tentatively schedule to air next month. I’ll post a firm date once it is confirmed. I’d like thank all my fans and the folks at Simon & Schuster for the groundswell of support for this story…okay, time to start losing those holiday lbs for my close-up.

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.
