Yes, you need this. July 15 2008
By J. Bard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
While the internet provides writers with almost everything they need to succeed, there is still nothing to be found online that compares to this essential guide. Each year, Alice Pope and her crew deliver the goods, by scouring the publishing world for book, magazine and multimedia publishers that accept work from children's writers. Trust me, every successful agent and submitting author in the children's book field has a dog-eared copy of this book on the shelf. Plus, the articles that accompany the listings are of invariably high quality. A must-have.

The Best Guide out there! Sept. 16 2008
By Marie Letourneau - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am a publisher author and illustrator, and I know first hand that this book works! How? Because it helped me to get where I am today! I have writers and illustrators asking me all the time how to get published, and I always direct them to this book. If you are a serious writer or illustrator, you NEED this book - not only does it have the names and addresses of countless publishers, it also has invaluable tips, and how-to's on everything from writing a query letter, to website design. I buy it every year, even though I no longer need it. I've purchased other "How to get published books" in the past, and none of them hold a candle to this one! Stop thinking about it and buy it!

Really helpful for a first time writer Sept. 6 2008
By Janice Goldacker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book has a wealth of information and is so much more than just a list of publishers. There are tips on what and how to submit a manuscript and interviews with first time writers. I am very happy that I purchased this book.

Some good articles, especially regarding things like query letters, and of course, the listings that make researching much easier.

Great Reference!! Oct. 24 2008
By Misty Dryden - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a really great book full of a ton of helpful advice. I really like to write and people have been telling me for years that I should try to publish the kids' books I write for my sister. The Scholastic website recommended this book and I'm so glad I got it because I had no idea all the different elements there were to consider when publishing a book! The only thing is that after I read this book I felt a little depressed at the prospect of getting my book published. This book definitely doesn't give you false hopes, LOL!! But at least they present a realistic view.
