Description: It was a simple incident in the life of James Clavell -- a talk with his young daughter just home from school -- that inspired this chilling tale of what could happen in twenty-five quietly devastating minutes.  He writes, "The Children's Story came into being that day.  It was then that I really realized how vulnerable my child's mind was -- any mind, for that matter -- under controlled circumstances.  Normally I write and rewrite and re-rewrite, but this story came quickly -- almost by itself.  Barely three words were changed.  It pleases me greatly because I kept asking the questions.... Questions like, What's the use of 'I pledge allegiance' without understanding?  Like Why is it so easy to divert thoughts? Like What is freedom? and Why is so hard to explain? The Children's Story keeps asking me all sorts of questions I cannot answer.  Perhaps you can--then your child will...."

Screenwriter, director, producer, and novelist, James Clavell, was born on October 10, 1924, in Sydney, Australia. Clavell's full name was Charles Edmund DuMaresq de Clavelle. Though he wrote screenplays for such highly-acclaimed films as The Fly, The Great Escape, and To Sir With Love, Clavell is best known for his best-selling, grand novels. The novels, which are set in the Far East, include King Rat, Tai-pan, Shogun, Noble House, and Gai-Jin. Remarkable for their scrupulous attention to cultural detail and their innovative plots, Clavell's work has been compared to that of Charles Dickens. Clavell died on September 7, 1994, at the age of 69.
