And while we're stealing info from other blogs, why not lift this little article first spotted on Kids Lit, this morning? The Book Standard has written, "Picture Books Fight Back: What the Publishing Industry Is Doing To Reinvigorate Illustrated Books". And here I thought they were doing so well. Hm. Now it seems that bookstores are restricting their "range" (uh-oh) and "novelty elements" (double uh-oh). What does this mean for you? Well, if you walk into a store and find that it's only stocking 10 picture book titles and 8 of those are part of the Rainbow Fish series, don't feel too surprised.
