It is not so much a magic ingredient, nor even a secret formula, but a sympathetic understanding of what is enjoyable and an appreciation of the qualities that make a children's book a winner. All this and more is distilled in "How to Write and Illustrate Children's Books." Written by experts, it explains for the first time how to bring the necessary qualities of freshness and vitality to text and pictures. Here is an analysis of successful fiction and nonfiction for the 2-11 age group, books that are perfect for sharing and reading aloud or for young children to enjoy themselves, over and over again.
