Any final words for people who love to read and/or write books for young readers?

This is a wonderful time to be a fan of books for young readers because we’ve never had so many, and so many kinds of, books — books that entertain and inspire. It’s also a great time to be a writer, but it’s also an incredibly competitive time to be a writer of books for young readers. Publishers are inundated with manuscripts and artwork, so writers have to work harder than ever to find fresh ways to tell stories.
