Synopsis:

To create a good picture book or story book, you must understand how the two differ in concept. A story book tells a story with words. Although the pictures amplify it, the story can be understood without them. The pictures have an auxiliary role, because the words themselves contain images. In contrast, a true picture book tells a story mainly or entirely with pictures.

Synopsis:

From preliminary idea to finished storyboard to finding a publisher, every step in the fascinating process of creating children's books is detailed in this guide.
