Making a Picture Book Cookie

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.

This sounds like a fantastic article to me, one I'd be really interested in reading. When I click on the link, though, I get an error message, something about the site is locked. Do you know why?

Ah ha! Wait, I went to her blog (which you linked to; thank you!) and she had a post about moving to a new, non-Verizon server, which means all the old bookmarks don't work. I found the article you mentioned here; I'm glad I found it. Thank you for mentioning it!

Thanks, I'll change the link in the blog post.

Since I made the link after she had announced she was/had changed servers, for some strange reason I thought the Cookie article had already been moved, too. sorry about that.
