A fascinating insight, completely upstaged by the adorable picture at the top! (and don't tell me I'm biased!)
I'm giving a talk on picture books next month. Very helpful. Thanks!
Caroline, Good luck with that talk. I'm glad you found these posts useful.
Picture books aside - that was the best description of anapaests and dactyls I have EVER read! BEAUTIFUL boy, btw, and haven't I seen that blanket somewhere before?
Thanks, Rachel. He is a beautiful boy, when he isn't raising hell:)I like that blanket, so it's possible I've used it somewhere before. I'm thinking of adopting it as my superhero cape.Crochet Man!
Hi Thomas, Nice series of posts on rhyming picture books. (Enjoyed the HP cover post too).I've just submitted my rhyming picture book manuscript and I think it follows most of the advice here. Hoping for the best!
Thanks, Abraham -- I'm glad you found them useful. Good luck with your ms!
Hi Thomas - just stepping out into the world of submitting rhyming picture books. Been writing rhyming verse for a while, and published my own collection last year (www.conradburdekin.com). Wondered if you knew of a complete list of agents / publishers in the UK who will accept submissions of rhyming picture books? Really enjoyed your insights. Thanks so much. Conrad
Hi, Conrad. Thanks for commenting. The best list I know of is the Writer's and Artist's year book:http://www.writersandartists.co.uk/I hope that helps! Good luck with your writing and with submissions. And now I'm off to visit your site...
