5.0 out of 5 stars A great overview of illustrating for kids. 23 Aug 2009
Format:Hardcover
As an aspiring children's illustrator I found this to be an excellent book, full to the brim with all the info you need, making your first dummy book to send away to publishers, developing interesting characters, interesting case studies and how to present yourself and your portfolio. I have nothing really negative to add, a great book overall.

5.0 out of 5 stars The only book you'll need... 2 Oct 2007
Format:Hardcover
This is the best and only book on the market that gives you a thorough and complete understanding of children's book illustration. With charming examples throughout it gives a sophisticated yet easy to read picture of the current childrens book market and what illustrating for them is really all about.
