Summary
"How Picturebooks Work is an innovative and engaging look at the interplay between text and image in a host of children's fiction. Drawing from an international range of major children's books, Maria Nikolajeva and Carole Scott discuss such favorites as Curious George and Frog and Toad Are Friends, along with the works of Maurice Sendak and Tove Jansson, to name a few. Picturebooks appeal to all readers - young and old. They provide common ground between generations and - perhaps more than any other literary or artistic medium - shape the representation and socialization of children. With 116 illustrations, How Picturebooks Work offers the reader a new methodology, groundbreaking theories, terminology, and working tools for understanding the dynamic picturebook form."--BOOK JACKET
