“Reading can be a road to freedom or a key to a secret garden, which, if tended, will transform all of life.”
― Katherine Paterson

Hello and welcome to Terabithia.com. Not Terabithia itself, of course. But you only need your imagination to get you there. This website is as far as the internet can get you, but I hope you’ll wander around the site and enjoy yourself while you’re here. I get lots of great questions from readers and if you have a question I hope you’ll find the answer you’re looking for on one of these pages. I wish I could answer everyone’s question on the phone or in a letter or through email. But as you see I am only one person and there are too many of you. To tell the truth if I only answered a fraction of the questions I get, I’d never have time to cook my food or walk my dog, much less write another book. So I’m inviting you to help me write more stories by asking you to research your own questions. This website may help. Or try your local library. The librarians I know love to find answers to questions. The harder the question, the better they seem to like it.
