Interesting article in The Los Angeles Times today by Susan Carpenter about the state of kids book publishing. Of course children’s literature, especially picture books, are always either dying or about to fly to new heights. And judging by the books mentioned this seems a bit skewed toward a small set of people who share a unique business arrangement…But it’s a great read and any press is better than none. I think.
From the article: This fall’s offerings span a wide variety of topics and suggest why children’s books have turned into the fastest-growing segment of the publishing industry.
