|Great trivia about a children's author whom so many of us adults (and, surely, kids, too) think we know but probably actually know very little, including the correct pronunciation of his name. And I liked your "deeper-thinking" questions relating to a select number of his individual stories and your encouragement to reconsider and/or more closely examine the assertion that he was not particularly fond of children.
I may revisit your trivia-initiated tribute here another time or two!
Thank you for sharing your thoughts and knowledge and inviting me to read this!
And to you I say, write on!
