Illustrators and writers as well—you need to take a look at these, “20 stunning book illustrations,” on creativeblog.com. I’ve always said that a picture book is collaboration between a writer and an illustrator. A writer writes the story, but the illustrator brings it to life. I am in awe of the talent of these artists. I have been so lucky to have gotten such great illustrators for my four books. I’ve seen the sketches for my next two books coming out in the spring and am delighted with what I’ve seen so far. The visual images in a book draw in the young reader. And we have illustrators to thank for that.
On a different note, I would like to wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving Day with your family and friends.
