    As Michael Kors once sighed to a clueless designer on Project Runway Where do I start Let s open with some descriptive words that sum up this book, and I will then go on to explain them in further detail Patronizing Insipid Smarmy Just plain bad Patronizing I believe that to write good children s literature, you have to think that children are intelligent, capable human beings who are worth writing for like Stephen King, who probably thinks kids are smarter than adults The author of T As Michael Kors once sighed to a clueless designer on Project Runway Where do I start Let s open with some descriptive words that sum up this book, and I will then go on to explain them in further detail Patronizing Insipid Smarmy Just plain bad Patronizing I believe that to write good children s literature, you have to think that children are intelligent, capable human beings who are worth writing for like Stephen King, who probably thinks kids are smarter than adults The author of The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, on the other hand, clearly thinks that children are idiots The main character, Br...
