Show Me a Story!

Renowned children's literature authority Leonard S. Marcus speaks with picture book creators and others – 21 of the world's most celebrated authors and illustrators – and asks about their childhood, their inspiration, their determination, their mentors, their creative choices, and more. Amplifying these richly entertaining and thought-provoking conversations are 88 full-colour plates revealing each illustrator's artistic process in fascinating, behind-the-scenes detail. Why do children love and need picture books so much? Leonard S. Marcus confirms that picture books matter because they make a difference in our children's lives.
