About the book
Children’s books tell stories with words and often with pictures, too. In What Do Authors Do? Christelow shows how an idea blossoms into a final book in colorful watercolors and comic book-style frames. In What Do Illustrators Do?, two artists create their own versions of Jack and the Beanstalk, from rough sketch to finished artwork. Budding youngwriters and artists, rejoice! Both inspiring books are now bound as one and include creative writing and drawing exercises.
