Children’s Picturebooks Second Edition is a revised edition of a bestselling title that carries invaluable insight into a highly productive, dynamic sector of the publishing world. Featuring interviews with leading illustrators and publishers from across the world, it remains essential reading for arts and literature students and aspiring children’s book illustrators and writers.

Children’s picturebooks are the very first book we encounter and play a major role in introducing us to both art and language. But what does it take to create a successful picturebook for children? This book covers everything from the change in children’s picturebooks over time to a breakdown of the children’s publishing industry including the editorial process, approaching publishers and literary agents, and the printing process.

With 15 new case studies from well-known illustrators like Jon Klassen, Oliver Jeffers and Beatrice Alemagna and publishers such as Puffin Picture Books, Thames and Hudson, and Enchanted Lion Books, this revised edition also includes a brand new chapter devoted to non-fiction, especially the rise of both narrative non-fiction and big books.
