A humorous and instructive look at how authors develop their ideas into a book and then find a pub-lisher. Step-by-step, the author describes the dedication and patience that writing requires; the help supplied by friends, family, editors, designers, and printers; and the satisfaction of readers' appreciation. "Librarians and teachers introducing the writing process will find this title very useful." -- School Library Journal, starred review

This lighthearted explanation of how books are created and produced combines "informative commentary with humorous, action-filled cartoons," said PW. Ages 5-8. (Aug.)

"Christelow's purpose-to answer the general question posed in the title by including just about every topic raised when authors visit schools or libraries-is accomplished in a humorous, sprightly manner. . . . Young readers will . . . welcome the journey from idea to finished book." School Library Journal, Starred
