Hullo - Welcome to Mondays with Mira
As you'll see from my video, I really like this book for a variety of reasons but particularly because Loud Emily provides a terrific example of a plot driven picture book. It was created to accompany Alexis O'Neill's interview for the Craft and Business of Writing Children's Picture Books e-Course http://www.picturebookacademy.com/writing-childrens-picture-books.html#.UE1QaRif8k9
If you are interested in picture books, check us out. An exciting new course will be starting October 29th for those who missed out on the first sold-out e-Course.
We are so excited to be mixing things up at CBA, beginning with some delicious additions to the Blogfish. Meet our awesome new bloggers!!
Here's our lineup:
1st Mondays begin with Clear Fork/Spork editor/art director, former agent and former kidlit professor Mira Reisberg PhD who is also the Director of the Children's Book Academy.
