Author's Comment: I don't really think of young readers as being terribly different from older readers, except that they feel the books more. When I tell a joke, there are people who say, "That's funny," and there are people who laugh. Grown-ups will read a book and say, "That's well-written" or "That's moving." Young readers will cry or giggle or screech or gasp. They're the ideal audience, really, and they are far more intelligent than most adults realize.
