Spring is here, and with it comes our semiannual children’s announcements issue. The season is full of major titles for readers of all ages and interests, with new books from Chris Van Allsburg, Cassandra Clare, Sarah Dessen, Anthony Horowitz, Holly Black, Candace Bushnell, James Patterson, Mo Willems, Alyson Noël, and so many more.
Our comprehensive listings of spring children’s books (see below) provide a broad landscape of publishers’ offerings for the entire season, and don’t forget to get a jump on fall in our exclusive sneak previews section.
This spring, we’re looking toward the digital future with features on e-book publishing for teens—what do they want? what’s available? and how do libraries figure in?—and on the major shift toward the online world when it comes to publishers’ marketing campaigns.
Whether you’re just starting out in publishing or a seasoned veteran, be sure to see what words of advice received by more than a dozen industry figures when they were newbies in the business—and read what advice of their own they have to pass along. (And be sure to share your own words of wisdom in the comments section.)
We’ve also got profiles of two prolific talents in the children’s book world: Lauren Myracle, who’s experiencing success along with controversy surrounding some of her books, and Sophie Blackall, who provided the cover illustration for our issue.
All this and more in our Spring 2011 Children’s Announcements Issue. Enjoy!
