good picture book tells a compelling story in just 32 pages. An excellent children’s picture book must not only spark the imagination of the child but also keep the interest of the adult reading the story. Because, as we know, children tend to want the same book read to them over and over again. Successful picture books have colorful and varied illustrations that surprise the reader with each turn of the page. To create a book with re-readability, one that will not languish on the bookshelf, requires an almost magical partnership between writer and illustrator. “It is important for the illustrator to understand the story,” says Lynn Estes Friess, author of the Carl book series, “and it can’t be a good story without a good illustrator.” Call of the Wild Magazine | 2015–16 15 A (Pictured L – R) Lynn Estes Friess, Tahlia Jensen, Eric Rohmann and Candace Fleming
