“HOW A BOOK IS MADE”
Illustrated by: Aliki Publisher: HarperCollins ISBN-13: 978-0064460859
In this humorous look at the world of book publishing, a cartoonish kitten who likes books suddenly wonders who created the book that he is reading. What he learns is it is not just one person (or cat in the this case) who is responsible for making his book but a team of professionals including: an author-artist (illustrator), an editor, a publisher, a designer, a copyeditor-proof-reader, a production-director, a color separator, a printer, a publicity and promotion director and a salesperson. Filled with funny moments, the story talks about the collaborative effort to create books in a way that children will be able to understand and enjoy.
