    Not much of a dragon guy, and I don’t think i would pick up the Rings trilogy if Tolkien were a young writer, but after reading this interiew i would try one of JD’s books. We start with that litte child reading A.A.Milne, growing up and making a new generation of readers starting at home, and we see someone who has a deep commitment to storytelling. you rock, Mr. Hallowell1

      Your fingers may be cold, but it appears your heart is warm. Thank you very much for the kind words!

    I know what you mean. Before this book series, the only book I really liked dealing with dragons was Bazil Broketail. I think a great many people would be highly disappointed in reading the LOTRs if they are expecting the movie. There is a lot less action in the books.

    Also, I think reading with children is a wonderful habit to start young. I already read to my three month old. Not that he really cares yet :)

      Crysnia, don’t be so sure that he doesn’t really care yet. We read to my son every day starting when he was only a few days old, and one of his first ten words was “book!” – and the exclamation point there is his, not mine.
