A Taste for Imagination and Maturity

“It is usual to speak in a playfully apologetic tone about one’s adult enjoyment of what are called ‘children’s books’.  I think the convention a silly one.  No book is really worth reading at the age of ten which is not equally (and often far more) worth reading at the age of fifty – except, of course, books of information.  The only imaginative works we ought to grow out of are those which it would have been better not to have read at all.  A mature palate will probably not much care for creme de menthe: but it ought still to enjoy bread and butter and honey.”   – C.S. Lewis, On Stories.
