This annual book for children's book writers and illustrators provides a multitude of articles, resources and market listings. Each year the guide is updated with new markets and resources. Markets that have changed are also updated with new information. Articles in the guide this year cover the business of writing, query letters, writing children's historical fiction, self-promotion strategies for illustrators and creating believable characters. Articles about children's authors and illustrators and their first books are also provided. The market listings include book publishers, magazines, play producers, agents and art reps. Each market listing includes complete contact information and information about what written and/or illustrated material each individual publisher is looking to purchase. The book also provides extensive resource listings, including conferences, workshops, contests, awards, books, publications and websites.
Editor Alice Pope, who has been editing the annual guide for the past few years, does a superb job of compiling and organizing the information in this book. She also offers a handy collection of tips for beginners at the start of the book. Writers and illustrators of books for children would be hard-pressed to find a more complete or informative guide.
