McCammon: If a Child’s Hero

“It seems to me that if a child’s hero is their mother or father – or even better, both in tandem – then the rough road of learning is going to be smoothed some. And every little bit of smoothing helps, in this rough old world that wants children to be miniature adults, devoid of charm and magic and the beauty of innocence.”

– Robert McCammon, Boy’s Life (p. 596)
