For those who are interested, there's an interview with China in the Guardian in relation to his new book:

China Mieville talks children's books with Michelle Pauli | By genre | Guardian Unlimited Books

I like his philosophy:

"When I was moving into my new house a few years ago we were having all our kitchen stuff delivered and my then-partner got off the phone, turned to me and said 'the fridge men are coming,'" explains Miéville. "Now, it seems to me that there are two kinds of people: those that hear that sentence and think 'oh good, delivery of the white goods', and then there's those people who imagine a kind of enormous cyborg thing..." Miéville trails off. There's absolutely no doubting which camp he falls into.
Hey, cool interview and thanks for the link :)

But I will still wait for other reader's opinions before picking up a children's book by him.
