Astrid Lindgren

Astrid Lindgren -- “I don’t want to write for adults. I want to write for readers who can perform miracles. Only children perform miracles when they read.” Pippi Longstocking is one of the most insane characters ever created by anyone!

Love this so much! From one of my all-time fav books (Pippi Longstocking). May have already pinned this...

sometimes i've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast (alice in wonderland) - cute to put a quote on each table for each Queen!
