Book News Annotation:

Ohio-based author and editor Dils explains how to turn ideas about children's books into published volumes. After reviewing the market as a whole and dispelling some misconception, she covers picture books, beginning readers and chapter books, middle grade and young adult novels, and nonfiction. Then she gets into the nuts and bolts, looking at conventions of style and technique, finding the right publisher, the query and proposal, formatting the manuscript, and creating a writing rhythm. An appendix sets out characteristics of the standard developmental stages. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
