    A little dated now - advises using a typewriter rather than submitting a handwritten manuscript! - but most of the points made are still valid and useful today. I'm not an illustrator so it was interesting to see how their journey, and that of an author/illustrator, differs from the plain old author's.

    The book has tons and tons of detail, all of which is useless. I have only read several how to children's books, this is by far the worse. You come away seemingly knowing nothing new. It just reads, reads, reads and reads, but not is really said. The book has tons and tons of detail, all of which is useless.

    Good book for those wishing to know more about the field or not knowing where to start. When you get serious, you'll want to read some additional books on working with the publishing world. From what I've understood, very few agents will touch children's books. So, you'll likely be going it alone up until you really get established, if you do. That means you will be working directly with the publisher/editor yourself.

As a result, you will need more information under your belt about the publishing world than what this book contains, but this is an excellent source to learn about everything else. It does include some starter info about the publishing end of things.

    This is a helpful guide for those interested in children's illustration. There's some publishing information to help get you started. Plus, there's a section on classic children's fiction, along with all the various types of picture books. The technique and production of making a book is quite informative, too. I discovered some valuable tips on getting to know your reader, choosing the right words and using your imagination in combining pictures with interpreting the text.

This book was published in the 80s and it's a bit outdated in today's publishing world but I found some treasures here in telling a story with pictures to be quite helpful.

    I didn't know how to rate this book because I haven't any other source to compare it to. Nor do I have the experience to even know if what is said and suggested in the book is truthful, helpful, or valuable. Thus, I just gave it three stars. A middle of the road rating. Until I can rate it more honestly it'll have to do. I think that overall, it was easy to navigate and follow. The advice and example seem saliable enough. So I liked it overall, especially for my first introduction and tutorial o I didn't know how to rate this book because I haven't any other source to compare it to.

    This books is packed with information. Even though I've read it, this book is one of those you use over and over as a reference book. This books is packed with information. Even though I've read it, this book is one of those you use over and over as a reference book.

    The somewhat outdated bits don't take away from the other mass of good advice. Very comprehensive and solid. I was at first fooled by the kiddy cover. It's a serious work.
