Synopsis: Joseph Schwarcz has gathered together a collection of his essays on picture book illustration in this work. These essays examine how the art of children's books communicates a message whether standing alone or in conjunction with text. This collection is international in scope and includes reproductions of examples of picture book illustration. Essay topics include how illustrations portray the universal emotions encountered in childhood: the search for love, coping with fear. Other essays address the social issues that affect people of all ages: the horrors of war, the exploitation of nature. Each essay also provides background information on child development and psychology related to the topic discussed.
