This artist and his illustrator do a wonderful job of laying out the specific steps to writing and getting a book into the reader's hands, and include lots of emotion and fantasy to engage young minds and adult readers.

Another gem from Mac Barnett! This is a book that’s all about the process of making a picture book – how an author writes, how an editor edits, how an illustrator illustrates, and how all of those things come together to make the books we love. In other hands this might sound like a somewhat dull premise, but this book has Barnett’s goofy and insightful sense of humor all the way through, and Adam Rex’s illustrations match that tone perfectly. There’s plenty of both information and silliness for little readers as well as grown-ups to love here, and it just might spark an interest in a kiddo who can see themselves writing their own books some day!

My daughter who is 3 loves books. I felt it was to old for her. I'll be on the search for another book. That has an easier book making concept.

But without a doubt it was very creative with a dash of humour!

A great book to introduce a unit on making books and publishing!
