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.

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 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.

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.

I've paged through quite a lot of books of this type and I must say that I think this one is the best I've come across. Not only is it a visual delight, but it contains so much helpful information for the aspiring UK Children's Book Illustrator that it would be difficult to do without it. My copy is only a month or so old, but I've already used it so much that the pages are dog-eared and the margins are filling up with my notes. I'm very glad I bought it.

It is a wonderful book telling everything abotu children's bood publishing. The only -ve comment i give is it is not as detail as I expected with modern examples. For instant, I was looking for some recommendations about what is the best choice for online / hard copy publishing; how much is the cost for different publishing ; whats is the best way to publish if you are good at computer illustration / hand drawing.... the book gives all the methods using in the market but not actually give clear answers to help me make up my mind.... a bit too vain. therefore 4 stars
