  1. On Monday 12th November I was doing my Reading for Pleasure talks to children at a lovely little international school in Almere, Netherlands. It went pretty well, I thought. They all listened well, interacted well and seemed more enthusiastic about reading and about comics at the end than they did when they entered. I then got a lift into the city centre and had some tea at the local Five Guys burger place (after the recommendations of the school’s librarians). Now, I don’t lay all this out as a way of bragging about the wonderful places my career continues to take me, but as a way of framing the story of how I experienced one of the most influential people in my life – Stan Lee.
