    I really enjoyed learning from Mr. Giblin's vast experience in the publishing industry. A definite must read for anyone wanting to write for children. I would have liked to have a more updated recommended reading list as I couldn't find many of the titles mentioned in the text.

He is forthcoming and honest, which I appreciate. He also clarifies everything so there is no question as to what his intentions were. His writing comes across clear and concise. I believe this book would be enlightening and educational for anyone taking a writing course or struggling with writing.

However, if you are a beginning writer, I urge you to get a copy of this book to keep on hand. Read it and you’ll find that there will be areas that you’ll reference back to during your potential career. I’m glad I sat down to read this book. I think that it will be a blessing in disguise for me and I thank Mr. Giblin for taking the time to allow us an in depth look inside his thoughts.

    This book was not very helpful to me. I have yet to find a guide for children's publishing that is 1.) up to date on the current market and technologies! and 2.) actually goes in depth enough to be useful. Of course you should always write your best and have a snazzy query letter, of course your protagonist should be presented with obstacles that change him, of course you should think twice about what is age-appropriate material for your audience. This is not new information.
