children read writes

(1991) What one writes for children is quite as important as what one writes for adults, and I'm not at all sure it isn't more important; because what children read can color their feelings, and affect their behavior, for the rest of their lives. If they are sufficiently impressed, what they read is absorbed into themselves and becomes part of their own experience to an extent that can't be so after they've grown up. Consequently, everything I write for children is really full of secret messages and exhortations and warnings of what I think the whole of life, which lies ahead waiting for them, is all about, and what I think they're going to need in the way of equipment.

I've read The Surplus of lettuces and cannot tell how I did love that. I long to translate in on Russian and also illustrate it. How can I manage that with Emma Smith then?
I'm waiting for your reply,
Thank you,
