QUOTES BY Nina Bawden
'People who don't read seem to me mysterious. I don't know how they think or learn about other people. Novels are a very important part of our education.'

'I like writing for children. It seems to me that most people underestimate their understanding and the strength of their feelings and in my books for them I try to put this right.'
