“There was a scene in The Bookworm Adventure where the hero, Bookworm, finds his little sister, Tink, who’s just turned 10.
She has a lot of problems.
One of them is her voice.
Tink says, ‘You don’t know how to read!’
Bookworm looks at her and goes, ‘No, you don’t.
I know how.’
So she says, I have a voice.
It’s a very special one.
So Bookworm goes to see his dad and says, Dad, I want to get this voice.
The dad says, You have to go to the doctor.
He says, Well, I’m going to go see my doctor.
So you go and you go to your doctor.
And you see him.
You have your dad’s voice.
And that’s the beginning of the journey that’s going to change the world.
Bookworm is now the youngest person ever to win the Pulitzer Prize.
It was the most popular children’s book of all time.
It became a movie and a Broadway musical.
I love it.”
