From LA Daily News:
"Publishers and agents still seem somewhat unwilling to admit that the 'over the hill gang' is a viable market source for the 'H.P.' series," Barry said. "They still have it in their heads that these are strictly children's stories. We adult fans know that simply isn't so. Most of us think they will be recognized historically among the classics. They, like all the others, appeal to the child in every adult."
These are the words of Nimbus 2003 volunteer Kathryn Barry, who believes the series are just as fit for adults as they are for kids.
