Some philosopher â€” I donâ€™t remember who â€” his theory was: Youâ€™ve got to give kids really beautiful childrenâ€™s books in order to turn them into revolutionaries. Because if they see these beautiful things when theyâ€™re young, when they grow up, theyâ€™ll see the real world and say, ‘Why is the world so ugly?! I remember when the world was beautiful.’ And then theyâ€™ll fight, and theyâ€™ll have a revolution. Theyâ€™ll fight against all of our corruption in the world, theyâ€™ll fight to try to make the world more beautiful. Thatâ€™s the job of a good childrenâ€™s-book illustrator.
