As an artist I always find it amusing to listen to kids talk. Some sound so adult while others sound so innocent and naive. I am fascinated by the cartoony nature of some kids expressions. For instance, I once overheard two kids having a conversation in a park. One kid wanted to go to his house while the the other kid did not. He said, " your house is like a million, million gazillion miles away." I then thought to myself, "what a great line for a children's book"!!!
