When we first started working on the original book, I remarked to people that my two dream choices for the task, in the whole world, were Peter S. Beagle and Lauren Faust. So, that worked out extremely well.
Now I’m wondering what seemingly unrealistic person I should try to get for book 3. (Don’t say Bill Watterson. I tried that. Nobody gets Bill Watterson. We have the same book editor and I still have no shot.)
I mean, one of the Bloom County books had an intro by Mikhail Gorbachev. The sky’s the limit.
