Renowned children s literature authority Leonard S. Marcus speaks with their creators and others twenty-one of the world s most celebrated authors and illustrators and asks about their childhood, their inspiration, their determination, their mentors, their creative choices, and more. Amplifying these richly entertaining and thought-provoking conversations are eighty-eight full-color plates revealing each illustrator s artistic process from sketch to near-final artwork in fascinating, behind-the-scenes detail. Why do children love and need picture books so much? Recasting and greatly expanding on a volume published in 2002 as 'Ways of Telling,' Leonard S. Marcus confirms that picture books matter because they make a difference in our children s lives.'
