Publisher's Summary

Writing a short book for children ought to be easy, right? Not if you don't know what you're doing. The picture book is an art form with a definite blueprint, and you deviate from it at your peril.

Like all of the writing lessons from the Front books, this book is brief. There are other books with philosophies and backgrounds and lots of full color illustrations on glossy pages, and this isn’t one of them. This is a simple, practical book that will give you the nuts-and-bolts information you need to write a good picture book. Combine that with inspiration and your imagination, and you will be good to go.

Veteran author Angela Hunt has written over 150 books, including more than a dozen picture books, among them the best-selling The Tale of Three Trees.

Useful book

This is a very direct and clear book. However the tone the writer has as she reads it is as if she is reading to a child. Or someone pretty simple minded.
It’s very distracting.

Great resource

Currently writing my 2nd children's picture book and this book was a useful guide. My greatest takeaway was the WAGS technique which I plan to use.
