How hard is it to write a childrenís book? Iíve purchased a Reading Rainbow-endorsed (LEVAR BURTON, I LOVE YOU) hardback for my nephew, and I note that the writing and illustration are attributed to two separate people. Somehow, I think Illustrator Lisa McCue got the shit-end of the stick here. The pictures make up ninety percent of the book and tell the story of a Puppy who wanted a Boy; the actual prose, no longer than, say, a monthís work at 100words.com, merely supplement the illustrations.

Groundbreaking stuff here, Author Jane Thayer, if, in fact, that is your real name.
