    This book has to be the bible of all children's book illustration books!
    Past, present and future illustrators are accounted for within the pages. The journey from initial ideas to finished book is an amazing insight for anyone thinking of a career within this field. The diversity of the fantastic art works used will appeal to all.

    I find something new, or a new perspective, everytime I pick this book up.

    Thankyou!!!
