    By scanning the book I can see that it is great reference for illustrating children's books. The writer states the views of may illustrators which is great. We learn about illustrations from the experts. Thank you Huda for giving me this wonderful book.

    A writer  who knows how to illustrate Or An illustrator who knows how to write Writing and illustrating, what comes first? This book doesn't give an answer to such a question, that's mainly what I was thinking of while reading it. Even though not every info mentioned in this book  was new "thanks to dr nojood", i think there's absolutely no harm in reading and trying to anticipate differently  * it's always good to read about the culture your characters belong to, that DOES bring them into life. * ther A writer  who knows how to illustrate Or An illustrator who knows how to write Writing and illustrating, what comes first?

I liked when ppl mixed two or more, brilliant! * some illustrators collect pix to help them with their drawings, others use google image, there's nothing wrong with choosing either ways, the best thing, though, maybe combining both.... The more options you have, the better * case studies and lots more

    I was lured by the topic and the art... this book was too broad. I wish I could return it for something with more applicable tips or ideas.
