This is something I’ve been discussing with people inside and outside the industry for several years and I thought I'd set down all my thoughts on the subject. Once I began writing, I realised that, to do the issue justice, it was going to have to be considerably longer than a blog post. In addition to an article about picture books, I've written two shorter articles on related subjects. All three articles can be found on a separate blog I’ve just set up at coolnotcute.com
I’d like to start a debate on the issue so, if you’re interested, please click here to visit the site.
