For Writers

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

 

Heather is the featured author in Julie Hedlund's 12x12 Challenge in April 2017.
