“The misconception about children’s fiction is that it’s lightweight or fluffy. It’s about really big and important things. It’s adults who like light and fluffy. Everything is big and important to a child, so their stories are about big and important events.” β€” Steven Moffat, writer/producer known for Sherlock (2010), Dr. Who (2005 – ), and Coupling (UK)
