About this site
Graphical element


Have you ever read a great book and wondered how it was made?

You may have asked yourself questions like: What is the author like? Does he raise llamas or wear green socks?

You may have thought about how the author came up with the idea for the story. Was it while he was brushing his teeth, or reading the newspaper?

If you like to make pictures, you may have been curious about how long it took for the illustrator to do all those drawings. How many days, months or even years? Did you ask yourself whether she needed special art supplies, or did she use every-day pencils, pencil crayons, or plasticine?

This site takes an inside look at how books for children are made. Using real-life examples, you will explore the story behind the story. You'll discover inside information: starting with where the idea came from, all the way to what happens after the book is printed.
