Writing Quote: Not All Children's Books Have Plots

Not every successful book for children is a rounded story, with a beginning, a middle and an end. Many are more linear, a series of adventures, which don't really deserve the name of plot. This works perfectly well as long as the events are sufficiently amusing or exciting or both.
