Shame on us if we can’t do better than this, in producing children’s literature.
How dumb, how gullible, do publishers think children are? And are you comfortable with the idea of a piece of extraterrestrial technology that’s virtually omnipotent and can, and will, give a bunch of kids anything and everything they ask for–instantly?
The more I think about these books, the less I like them. “Egg” the spaceship is presented to us as a machine, but it acts more like a god. And if you think absolute godlike power is a good thing for any children to have, you’re flat-out crazy.
Please! We just have to do better!
Speaking for myself, if God gave me everything I ever asked for, that would be proof He hated me.
