There is perhaps no better time to be introduced to the world of children's publishing than with the 10th edition of the Children's Writer's & Artist's Yearbook.

This latest edition has been updated with new articles so there is more information about digital and self-publishing as well as informative articles by famous authors on how they found success.

One slight downside is that in their list of publishers, it might be helpful if they sub-divided them into ones who accepted unsolicited manuscripts and ones who only receive work through agents, as these are two different routes for an author.

Some of the existing content has been updated to various degrees and if you have an interest in children's publishing, the Yearbook is a vital information resource.

The yearbook is, of course, indispensable and there isn't anything else to compare it with anyway.
However, some improvements could be made. The list of publishers ought to be broken down into categories. It would also be useful in principle to have a separate list of publishers that accept unsolicited manuscripts - but this would end up a very short list, as essentially there aren't any, other than in specialist areas (so anyone buying the book for this purpose may find themselves disappointed).
It is also off-putting to come across a number of mistakes in the volume - one experienced author seemed to have something of a spelling problem, which copy-editing had not picked up.

This is the children's writer's bible. Don't even think about sending out your work until you've read through this. Excellent.

I primarily use the lists of agents and publishers etc - excellent resource. The essays are excellent too. Essential book for me as I am a writer but I would recommend this for illustrators too.

A great book for any budding writer. Full of lists of publishers in the UK and abroad and the same for agents. Lots of advice from published, well known authors and lots and lots of useful contacts for any sort of children's writing. E.g. magazines, TV
