Winnie the Pooh wisdom

“To the uneducated, an A is just three sticks.”[1]

“You can’t help respecting anybody who can spell Tuesday, even if he doesn’t spell it right.” ~ Rabbit[2]

“It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like ‘What about lunch?’”[3]

This blog is a kind of electronic storage locker for ideas and quotes that inform my research... literary research into fiction for young adults (with a special focus on New Zealand fiction). Kiwis are producing amazing literature for younger readers, but it isn't getting the academic appreciation it deserves. I hope readers of this blog can make use of the material I gather and share by way of promoting our fiction. Cheers!
