An absolute must-read for anyone interested in breaking in or even for a seasoned pro. From the moment I read the Contents page I knew I was in for a long digestible read but by no means is it meant to be read all at once or in a hurry, what this book is meant for and I quote, its sole purpose is to inform you in almost every aspect of the children's book publishing market, inspire you to go after what you set out to do and get your literature endeavors published and collecting your advance fees and royalties in no time at all. I am definitely going to be getting this gem of a book every year it comes out on the shelves of my favorite book store, B&N of course. It has helped me immensely and continues to each and every time I am in a pickle about the many who's, what's, where's and when's of Children's Book writing and illustrating. As many of you know if you have visited my profile, I am an Author, Illustrator, Animator, Cartoonist, StoryBoard Artist, Layout & Background Painter, Concept Artist, and Book Cover Designer. But enough about me get this book already! It is a treasure trove of knowledge for any Writer and Illustrator.
