Wired Loves HERO!

May 4, 2012

Jonathan Liu’s (Wired magazine) stellar review of The Search for WondLa a couple of years back, made me one happy geek. Especially because it was posted on Wired’s Geekdad blog, which is like a big kid’s blog custom-made with everything I adore in this world.

Hopefully his tantalizing review of Hero for WondLa will hold  you over until next Tuesday’s release. In fact, be sure to check back in with Geekdad next week for an interview with me where I talk all things WondLa.

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.
