Philip Pullman on "age-guidance"

A month or so ago I had a letter from each of my publishers telling me that they had commissioned some research and that, as a result of the findings, they were going to place an age-guidance figure on all their books, saying that this one was for children of 9+, that one for 7+, and so on.
My immediate response was to say, as vigorously as I could, "Not on my books, you're not."
