Quotes from an old interview in The Lion and the Unicorn.
- I began writing for children because I couldn't do anything else.
- I really don't quite know what I'm doing.
- Toad is a neurotic and Owl is a psychotic.
- You tend to like your friends' work. You meet people in the field, and if you like them, you like their work. If you don't like them, you don't like their work. It's very strange. And sometimes a terrible thing is, you meet an artist whose work you hate but you like him and you don't know what to do.
