Then I find myself writing these words to my editor: I look at the book and think, Where did it come from? It really does seem to me that it has come from another place and from people beyond myself. It has a magical feel for which I take no credit.
I often feel that way when I look at my children. The time comes to let the book and the children go and have faith that everything is going to be alright. I think that this is what The Little Tree is all about.
