'This private secret place'

16 January 2006

'This private secret space, this hidden empire that opens out between the book and yourself, is precious. In an age when there are more distractions and ways of filling time - or wasting time - than human beings have ever had before, this rich, consoling, inspiring, liberating solitude is more valuable than ever. We must lead our children and show them the way.'

Philip Pullman
