Have you ever wondered how long it takes for a picture book to be published? Does an author have to make the changes that the editor suggests? Does the author need to tell the illustrator what to draw?
Come and visit us on Tuesday 18 August when we are talking to Claire Saxby, the author of picture book Sheep, Goat and the Creaking Gate. She’ll be answering those questions (and more!).
Claire is taking the book on a blog tour. Here are the other stops on her tour:
