This edition features more than 475 entries on the best-loved children's authors and illustrators, numerous essays on social and historical issues, thirty personal glimpses into craft by well-known writers, illustrators, and critics, and invaluable reading lists by category. The essential guide to children's books and their creators summarizes the canon of contemporary children's literature, in a practical guide essential for anyone choosing a book for or working with children.
