Having worked as both editor and author, Harold Underdown is a knowledgeable and sympathetic guide to the often bewildering world of writing and publishing books for young people. The Complete Idiots Guide to Publishing Childrens Books is encouraging without pandering, realistic but not pessimistic, thorough and generous. I wish this book had been around when I first started out!
--Linda Sue Park, Newbery Medalist
What a thorough and useful book! A guided tour of childrens book and magazine publishing that never skips a step. For seasoned writers and illustrators it is valuable. For beginners, it is essential. I learned plenty!
--Gail Carson Levine, Newbery Honor winner
My life would have been much easier if The Complete Idiots Guide to Publishing Childrens Books had been available when I was getting started! It covers the whole territory--though I particularly like the sections on revision and the publishing maze. Consider it your cheat-sheet to the world of childrens publishing.
--Cynthia Leitich Smith, fiction author and owner of Cynsations
With each new edition, this amazing resource gets better and better. Just when you think Harold has said all that can be said to help writers understand the complex world of childrens publishing, he offers something new. An eye-opening tool for new writers, and a vital support to any writing career, this book always perches near the top of my reference pile so I can snatch it quickly to find the answers I need. If you truly want to understand this business, this books for you.
