Oh man, I don’t think I could handle Gaiman’s words in Gaiman’s voice-I would go into a fangirl coma.
Have you read Terry Pratchett? He’s done some very, very good books that have been pigeonholed as Young Adult. I wish I had thought to nominate Tiffany Aching for president last year. Oh drat, she couldn’t because she’s English. How about Pippi Longstocking, then? Pippi may be more of a wild card than Tiff, but she still has a better head on her shoulders than most men in suits. Oops, wrong again — Google says she’s Swedish. Ok, I give up. Your turn!
