Lauren Child in Times Online

The Times Online recently posted an article about Lauren Child, including her trip to the slums of Mongolia and Mexico with UNESCO, and her annoyance with the question she gets most often.
How do you write for children when you don't have any children? . . . Would you ask most writers that? Do you ask a crimewriter if he's committed any murders recently? Childhood: we've all been there.
And judging from her books, Lauren seems to remember it awfully well.
