Wunderkind

"When Christopher Paolini walks on the high school stage for his book signing appearance, wearing jeans and carrying a black backpack, he could be mistaken for a student. But he gets a rock star reception from his fans, with wild cheers and flashing cameras."

I have to confess that I have not his books, but it's always way cool to hear that an author is capturing kids' imaginations and even cooler when he started writing when he was a kid himself. It seems to make him more "real" to kids, to help them realize that books are written by *people* and that, if they have the desire, they might be able to do this, too.
