Contrary to popular belief, writing for children is no child’s play. Children either love or hate a book. There is no middle ground for them and hence it is that much more imperative that a writer brings in a sensitivity in tone and voice while at the same time touching on themes a child can relate to. This is the reason why names like Enid Blyton, Roald Dahl, Ruskin Bond and J K Rowling have continued to exercise a magic on their child readers. And will be a decided influence on them forever.
