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.
