If you write for children and you've put the finishing touches to your manuscript and are ready to send it out then get this book! It's got a long list of agents as well as publishers and you really can't be without this book if you are serious about getting published!

The only negative thing I would say (and the reason for giving it a four star rating instead of five) is that you really don't need to get this every year as I got the 2010 and 2011 versions as well as this one and I really can't tell the difference between all three of them! I would say get this book every two or three years just to see if anything new has been put in or if you've never bought it before but if you've already got a couple of previous years then save your money and wait for a couple of years between editions!

This is an excellent and informative guide for all aspiring Children's writers and illustrators. Highly recommended. It provides a detailed list of contacts for publishers and agents as well as offering general advice.

As soon as this arrived, I couldn't put it down. I was glued to the pages and found it a really useful source of information. Not only this, but I found it gave me a new found enthusiasm to continue with my writing and a strong belief that I will get my work published. I've also just ordered the Writers' and Artists' 2012 yearbook and have very high expectations based on the Childrens book.

An excellent book. I have just written my first story and not sure where to go from here. This book has offered loads of advice and examples of which route to take, how to prepare your work and lots of other encouragement. I'm looking forward to taking the next step now rather than feeling lost!

Bought this as a gift for a budding children's writer and the recipient was really pleased with it. Arrived with all the usual Amazon efficiency, really quickly, well packaged and in perfect condition. Can't go wrong really.

This is a very interesting and informative book for anyone trying to get into the market for children's books. Where it falls down a little is in the information on publishers...who you can approach etc, which is not always the current situation. I found, too, that some of the author's write ups were dated in terms of what is now possible/permissable when trying to get published. For example one can no longer just phone up a publisher, or just send a manuscript without prior permission to do so. Reading about success stories is good though as it encourages you to go on!
