Here I am, researching stuff for my 10 page essay for the Vermont College program, when I run across one of my favorite articles about How To Write A Picture Book. Not just any picture book -- but a good one. One that is publishable and will be read and enjoyed by both adults and children.
It's the Making a Picture Book Cookie speech/ article by Cheryl Klein, editor at Scholastic Books. (would it blow your mind if I told you she helped with the editing of the last few Harry Potter books?)
Cheryl also writes a blog and you can read it here.
