For any child who draws for the sheer fun of it and yearns to try a hand at illustrating his or her own book, this intelligent and engaging primer is a must. The author-illustrator's text and pictures are clear and enticing as she shows how two artists go their separate ways, each of them producing an appealing picture-book rendition of Jack and the Beanstalk. The reader/viewer learns about perspective, scale and design, as well as how to fit words and pictures into a 32-page "dummy." An adult illustrator would also find this lively work invaluable.
