Welcome to The Picture Book Place

I’m so glad you’ve stopped by. As an avid reader and writer of picture books, I’ve always been fascinated by the mechanics behind fantastic picture books. Why does a book work so well? What elements or techniques have the writer/illustrator used to bring about such a fantastic end result?

Most of all, I’m interested in what I can learn from great picture books and then apply to my own writing.

At The Picture Book Place, I deconstruct picture books I love and dig into the elements of the books to find out exactly what works so well and why.

I’d love for you to join me in the process.
