From the Guardian:
Apparently, a well-established, enormous publishing house has decided to insert the following clause into its standard contract for children's books: "If you act or behave in a way which damages your reputation as a person suitable to work with or be associated with children, and consequently the market for or value of the work is seriously diminished, and we may (at our option) take any of the following actions: Delay publication / Renegotiate advance / Terminate the agreement."
*Obviously, I have no idea if Mr. Willems is prone to table dancing. His name was just the first that came to mind, probably because of this, which I heard about 30 seconds of yesterday driving home and then missed the rest because of the STUPID WEATHER ALERT that cut it off. As if I DIDN'T KNOW that it was pouring rain and windy and lightning-y! I wanted to hear Mo!
