On Reading Aloud

| No TrackBacks

This article about Reading Aloud, from The Times, is billed as being 'by Philip Pullman'. But it's not. Pullman is referred to and quoted in the piece, as is Francesca Simon, but it is not he who has just finished reading The Princess And The Goblin to a 9-year-old:

I've just finished George MacDonald' s The Princess and the Goblin, which my nine-year-old would not have managed alone, but which he begged for each night, once the story was launched. That moment when a child's eyes begin to shine because they have fallen in love with a story, or a character or with reading itself is magical.
