By Leonard S. Marcus

“Will inspire, inform, and delight those of any age who areengaged in—or by—the arts.” — The Horn Book

Renowned children’s literature authority Leonard S.

Amplifying these richly entertaining and thought-provoking conversations are eighty-eight full- color plates revealing each illustrator’s artistic process in fascinating, behind- the-scenes detail. This inspiring collection confirms that picture books matter because they make a difference in our children’s lives.
