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.

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.

This book gives you a real insight on how to get started in children's books illustration. it starts of with a brief history of books and ends with how to get published, every chapter was informative, easy to read, and inspiring. it also includes case studies where individual artists talk about there work and give you an insight on there carer which is useful, it is in full colour and the quality of the book such as the paper stoke is of good quality. i am studying a degree in graphic design and would like to specialise in children's book illustration, this book has help me with my course, i think it would be a most have for all those illustration students out there.

This Book is most helpful especially as I am doing a Book Illustrating Course at College. It answers all the questions I have and it was one of the books recommended by the tutor.

I really benefited from reading this book as it covered the complete range of topics I was interested in. These ranged from the first illustrated children's books through to design styles, different artists, techniques and getting published. A really worthwhile read for anyone considering illustrating children's books, whether professionally or as an enthusiast.
