Looking at the wide variety of artistic genius in children's books, Show and Tell teaches the reader how to look for the perfect marriage of art and text, and is an invaluable guide for anyone interested in children's books and the art of illustration. Illustrators include: David Wiesner, Trina Schart Hyman, Lane Smith, Brian Selznick, Bryan Collier, David Shannon, Petra Mathers, Paul O. Zelinsky, Hilary Knight, Denise Fleming, Harry Bliss, and Betsy Lewin.
