From the Bonstra email list

I don't know how many of you read the Saturday "funnies" in the newspaper. But, the comic stip "Mallard Fillmore" did a tribute to Madeleine L'Engle yesterday.

Mallard has been ragging this week on celebrities who have decided that they have to write children's books. And, yesterday, he said
"I'm thinking maybe we'd all be better off if there were fewer people writing 'children's books' and more people reading children's books."

And then, just to prove the point, there's a father/son duo reading A Wrinkle in Time. It's nice to see that even comic strips I don't normally enjoy have great taste in books. :-)
