While working towards my MFA, I read Blake Snyder’s Save the Cat! This insider’s guide to screenwriting was eye-opening, especially the chapter where Snyder defines the 15 different beats of successful movies. Could this apply to picture books? I wondered. To test it, I pulled some of my new favorites off my bookshelf:
Leave Me Alone! by Vera Brosgol
Snappsy the Alligator (Did Not Ask to Be in This Book) by Julie Falatko & Tim Miller
The Bear and the Piano by David Litchfield
Ninja Red Riding Hood by Corey Rosen Schwartz
