Does Lauren Child feel equally strongly about the possibility that girls feel the same way about books with a lead boy? Thinking of my own childhood, I had heard of Anne of Green Gables, Katie and what she did, Little Women, and Noel Streatfeild's ballet books, but it never occurred to me to read any of them. But how many girl contemporaries of mine used to read Biggles?

From the point of view of sales, children's authors benefit from appealing to both sexes, as AR obviously did.
