"Highly recommended" for aspiring writers

Based on the premise that writing for children requires no less skill than writing for anyone else, Margaret Clark's straightforward, sympathetic book will again find eager readership among the steadily increasing number of aspiring children's authors. A highly respected children's book editor with over three decades' experience, the author succinctly describes what makes children's books unique, with special emphasis on publishing and marketing. Enhanced with examples from the work and lives of established children's authors, the book covers writing for different age groups and in different genres (including non-fiction), taboos in the marketplace, attitudes and assumptions, contracts, literary agents, organizations, and more.

"The books greatest strength is that it balances the viewpoint of publishers, writers, parents, educationalists and, of course, children". -- Writer's Monthly Winning strategies for competitive fields
